John Quincy Adams Indian Peace Medal, 1825. Silver. Middle Size. First Reverse.  J.IP.12, Pr.42, B.27....John Quincy Adams Indian Peace Medal, 1825. Silver. Middle Size. First Reverse. J.IP.12, Pr.42, B.27. Fine to Very Fine. Obverse signed F. 62.3mm. Rims 2.8 - 3.1mm thick. 1,456.0 gns. No apparent witness line. Nice, even and deep silver gray color, a decent looking example. Holed near the top; no loop. Minor handling marks, two reverse rim bruises (one heavy). This size is known in silver originals and copper restrikes. It is the second rarest after the small medal (Carlson's ratios of survivors once again accurately reflect the true rarity situation among the three J.Q. Adams sizes). The cataloguer has records of four examples of the 62mm medal including the pedigreed piece in Presidential's July, 1993 auction. The most recently seen auction was of a Fine example sold by Sotheby's (New York) in December, 1999. LaRiviere's scratched EF was ex Sotheby Parke-Bernet's sale of October, 1975.

Ex Victor F. Rose on November 13, 1968.
