John Quincy Adams Indian Peace Medal, 1825. Silver. Third Size. First Reverse. J. IP.13, Pr.42, B.28....John Quincy Adams Indian Peace Medal, 1825. Silver. Third Size. First Reverse. J. IP.13, Pr.42, B.28. Choice Extremely Fine. Obverse signed F. 51.1mm. Rims 3.6 - 3.7mm thick. 1,099.7 gns. No witness line. Prooflike fields. Light silver gray in color. Specific gravity 10.46. This is one of the (probably) early 20th c. silver restrikes from the original dies, the reverse in its quite rusted state (most obvious above the crossed pipe and tomahawk). The edge is rough in places as if the flan had been cast rather than rolled. Mr. Ford bought this piece ''on spec'' but a restrike is a restrike. Known in silver originals and restrikes (as here) and copper restrikes, this is the rarest of the three J.Q. Adams medals. Carlson noted three auction records, but the cataloguer can locate no meaningful modern one of an original medal in silver.

Ex Dr. Bridge Collection (Rich Hartzog, September 9, 1991, lot 1055).
