Thomas Jefferson Indian Peace Medal, 1801. Silver. Third Size. J.IP.4, Pr.39, B. 17. Choice Extremely...Thomas Jefferson Indian Peace Medal, 1801. Silver. Third Size. J.IP.4, Pr.39, B. 17. Choice Extremely Fine. 53.7mm. Rims 3.6 - 3.8mm thick. 571.5 gns. Nice, even pale silver gray color on both sides with considerable prooflike lustre on the reverse. A simply outstanding specimen. With original hanger and loop. Somewhat softly struck on the bases of the letters at left in the obverse inscription; bases of FRIEN weak on the reverse. Small planchet depression in the right obverse field. Extremely rare: the second rarest of the three sizes in silver shells. The Winterthur collection has a polished Very Fine example and the piece in Bowers & Merena's sale of March, 2001 was also graded Very Fine. There was a very nice specimen, missing its loop, in Sotheby's (New York) sale of December, 1993 that Tony Terranova bought for $15,000. The medal is also known in solid pewter (reported by Belden) but of uncertain date.

Ex J. Douglas Ferguson at the CNA Convention, Montreal, on August 12. 1965.
