James Madison Indian Peace Medal, 1809. Silver. Middle Size. First Reverse. J.IP. 6, Pr.40, B.21....James Madison Indian Peace Medal, 1809. Silver. Middle Size. First Reverse. J.IP. 6, Pr.40, B.21. Very Fine. 62.8mm. Rims 3.2 - 3.5mm thick. 1,584.4 gns. Witness line at 6:00 (from obverse). Deep silver gray in color with some blue iridescence. Neatly holed at the top; no loop. Noticeable obverse rim bruise, less obvious ones on the back, other minor handling marks. Obverse rim beginning to fail in a couple of places, earlier state than the next.
