1972 Washington's Farewell to His Officers - Longines Sterling Medal correct Gallery
Longines Symphonette ~ Whittnauer

Great American Triumphs ~ Washington's Farewell to His Officers
Correct version.

I have found that about 1 out of every 10 of these medals have a date on the reverse that is in error and reads December 4, 1778 instead of December 4, 1783.
About 5000 of each medal in this set was minted. Many were melted in the silver boom of the late 70's. I would estimate there are well less than 500 of these errors in existence.
They can be found at the same prices as the correct ones.
There may be other errors out there on other medals. This is a bit of a sleeper since little attention is paid to this medal in the 60 medal set. It is certainly not one of the most popular themes.
I think it would take quite a bit of time to research and check them all out.
