(c. 1859) Lovett North Point & Fort McHenry Pro Patria NGC MS65RB SOLD
(c. 1859) Lovett North Point & Fort McHenry Pro Patria NGC MS65RB
Here is an undated copper token by Robert Lovett which commemorates North Point and Ft. McHenry from the Battle of Baltimore in September 1814, which was the inspiration of Francis Scott Key’s Star Spangled Banner. The North Point & Fort McHenry Lovett Token has been graded MS65RB by NGC and is encapsulated in one of their newer-style edge-view holders. The designs on each side of this piece are also found on other tokens. The obverse design of Ft. McHenry monument is also used as the reverse of the Baker 324 Washington token. Similarly, the reverse Pro Patria design of this piece was also used as the reverse of the Baker 268 Washington token. Given that information, it is believed that the piece here was likely made in or about 1859. The token is semi-prooflike and exhibits some attractive and colorful toning when tilted into direct lighting. Unfortunately, the beautiful color is not fully captured by the photos provided and is much more colorful and flashy in hand. An eye appealing high grade token by Robert Lovett.
