Andrew Jackson Indian Peace Medal, 1829. Silver. Third Size. First Reverse. J.IP. 16, Pr.43, B.31....Andrew Jackson Indian Peace Medal, 1829. Silver. Third Size. First Reverse. J.IP. 16, Pr.43, B.31. Impaired Proof. Obverse signed FURST F. 50.8mm. Rims 3.0 - 3.1mm thick. 854.6 gns. An exceptional specimen, Mr. Ford thought this might have been one of the three Proofs delivered to Jackson in late November, 1831. Fairly even medium silver gray in color in the centers, slightly darker around the rims with iridescent blue there. Both sides are brightly reflective and prooflike. Neatly holed; original loop. Serious reverse rim bruise at left; lightly hairlined. Once cleaned. Patches of rust on the reverse below PEACE. This size is known in silver originals and copper restrikes.

Carlson's research yielded only four auction records for a silver 51mm Jackson. Garrett's (lot 1921) reappeared in Stack's sale of October, 1988 (lot 254). Another appeared in the August, 1997 Maine Antique Digest offering by Stack's. The ANS has one engraved on the back BEAR SHIELD. In April, 1990 the cataloguer was shown an impression of the Jackson portrait for the 51mm medal on a square lead planchet with bevelled edges. It was not a die or hub trial. In the legend, the first 'O' and first 'T' showed recutting. The origin and purpose of that piece remain obscure.

Ex Gale Hawkes on November 5, 1975.
