George Washington Commemorative Token 1st President USA

In this entry we’ll have a discussion on a George Washington Commemorative Token which was produced by Scovill Manufacturing Co and is thought to be approximately 60 to 100 years old.  On the front is an image of the 1st President of the United States of America: George Washington.  He believed strongly in democracy and even though held extraordinary power after winning the American Revolutionary war he did not make himself King or Emperor for the sake of the Republic.  Washington also refused to be President for more than 2 terms.  In the second picture is the reverse side which honors Washington though he did get paid as President but refused pay when leading the Continental Army in the American Revolution.

This nice token honors a great US President.
