Washington Seasons Medal. The Spinner. Silver. Obverse signed C.H.K. Fc. J.IP.52,  Pr., B.14. About...Washington Seasons Medal. The Spinner. Silver. Obverse signed C.H.K. Fc. J.IP.52, Pr., B.14. About Uncirculated. Prooflike. 48.2mm. 706.3 gns. 2.8 - 2.9mm thick. Not looped as issued. An outstanding example. Both sides are toned in rich, medium silver gray with faint iridescence. The fields are brightly reflective. This is one of the nicest we can remember seeing and was clearly carefully preserved from the day it was first struck for presentation purposes. This type is also known in silver and bronzed copper. The obverse design was described by the artist as ''No. 3. The inside of a house-a woman spinning-another weaving-an infant in the cradle rocked by another child somewhat larger-is meant to convey an idea of domestic tranquility and employment.'' Mintages: 149 silver with loop, 17 silver without loop, 58 bronzed copper with loop, 9 bronzed copper without loop.

Ex Emidio Bastianelli (West End Coins) on May 2, 1985.
