(undated) George Washington Success Medal. XF Details PCGS.
This variety has the characteristic die crack extending through the head and from the nose to the rim. The surfaces are fresh and lightly toned with traces of red-brown luster among the lettering, and is marred by only a few minor nicks and two light scratches across the center of the reverse. The PCGS holder describes this piece as the plain edge variety which is considered to be R8 with approximately 5 to 10 specimens known.

The precise origin of the Washington Success medals is unknown. While some have considered them to be 18th century tokens, modern researchers have concluded they are more likely 19th century game counters.
