Second Obverse, GW-315, Baker 290, bronze, 51mm
            
              
This medal is a muling of the Masters Carpet reverse by George H. Lovett  with a Washington die by Alexander C. Morin. The commentary in Baker states "the only traceable specimen was purchased by T. Harrison Garrett in W. Elliot Woodward's 69th sale". I believe this is the piece described. It had been sold in a Heritage Auction in September of 2006 and part of the description read "The other (referring to a second example) is ex Bushnell, lot 1375, and has not been seen in over a century".  Another example is in a private collection and a third in the Baker Collection in
Philadelphia. A fourth example was sold by Stacks-Bowers in November of 2017.

This first reverse had 'Fredericksburgh Lodge, MD.' The Lodge was
actually in Virginia. George H. destroyed the reverse die, created a 
second correct die and then struck the following medals.
