Martin Van Buren Indian Peace Medal, 1837. Silver. First Size. First Reverse. J. IP.17, Pr.44, B.32....Martin Van Buren Indian Peace Medal, 1837. Silver. First Size. First Reverse. J. IP.17, Pr.44, B.32. Extremely Fine. Obverse signed FURST F. 75.6mm. Rims 3.3 - 3.7mm thick. 2,269.7 gns. A nice example. Pale silver gray in the fields with light russet toning around the rims. Brightly reflective semi-prooflike fields. Holed near the top; no loop. Minor handling marks, nick in the upper left obverse field, reverse field abraded at bottom. This size is known in silver originals and copper and aluminum restrikes. The largest size Van Buren may be marginally rarer than the other two but it should be said that of all the presidents in silver Van Buren is one of the easiest to obtain and in nice condition too. Garrett's was a nice Extremely Fine. There was an AU in Stack's March, 2000 auction. The Dreyfuss specimen, on the other hand, was a fairly ugly tooled Fine.

Carlson's research yielded 10 auction records for a silver 76mm Van Buren. This size does not seem to have been restruck in silver. The aluminum piece may be seen in Stack's 2000 Americana auction.

Ex Jim Cope on December 10, 1979.
