Feb. 22 Birthday

Baker A154, white metal, 29mm

Type of A154 in copper, 29mm

     In "Medallic Portraits of Washington" this medal is listed only in white metal, is not attributued to George H. Lovett, and the image looks like a grainy photo of a photo. There is no rarity listing but it seems they are very scarce. The piece pictured above was in a March 2004 Stack's Sale where it was attributed to Robert Jr..
     I am calling it the work of George H. because of the medal pictured below. This is also unlisted and uses the obverse of Baker A154 with a George H. die.
