In 1797, President George Washington moved out of his Philadelphia residence on Market Street. For ten year, Philadelphia was the temporary capital of the United States as the federal district of Washington DC was being constructed. Could this 1797 dollar, minted in Philadelphia, have passed through the house that for a time served the same purpose as the future White House?
