Mule JAB M/E-16 LOVETT'S WASHINGTON BUST / LIBERTY CAP Tin
28mm - Unknown number struck in Tin by Mason or Edwards

The Washington die was cut by George H. Lovett and first used to strike Baker-194. It is currently unaccounted for. The Liberty Cap die was cut by Bolen in 1862. It was sold to Mason, then to Edwards, and is currently in the ANS collection.

The piece pictured is the only example I have ever seen offered for sale. It was part of the Q. David Bowers collection and was sold on EBAY in August 2011 by CWTGUY. Graded NGC-64, it sold for $1044. The same piece sold again on EBAY for $821 in February 2012.
