Andrew Jackson Indian Peace Medal, 1829. Silver. Middle Size. First Reverse. J. IP.15, Pr.43, B.30....Andrew Jackson Indian Peace Medal, 1829. Silver. Middle Size. First Reverse. J. IP.15, Pr.43, B.30. Choice Extremely Fine. Obverse signed FURST F. 62.3mm. Rims 3.0 - 3.2mm thick. 1,444.7 gns. Medium silver gray in color with a touch of pale iridescent blue. Both sides are brightly reflective and semi-prooflike. Neatly holed; replacement loop. Once cleaned. Some rim nicks both sides, other light handling marks. This size is known in silver originals and copper restrikes. It is very rare with only two recent auction records for a 62mm silver Jackson (Stack's and Presidential's sales of December, 1993, the former re-appearing in Linett's March, 1997 auction as lot 180).

Carlson's research yielded only 3 auction records for a silver 62mm Jackson. There is one example in the ANS Collection (the Prucha plate piece) but the Museum of the American Indian has only the more common 76mm size. The Dreyfuss (1986), Kessler-Spangenberger (1981), and Hunter (1920) sales also contained only the 76mm medal in silver. Jackson in silver was missing altogether from the Henry Holland (1878), Mickley (1878), Bushnell (1882), Parsons (1914), and Schenkel (1990) sales. This size may not have been restruck in silver.

Ex New Netherlands Coin Company's 34th Sale (October 5, 1951, lot 486); J. Douglas Ferguson at the CNA Convention (Montreal) on August 12, 1965.
