Martin Van Buren Indian Peace Medal, 1837. Silver. Third Size. First Reverse. J. IP.19, Pr.44, B.34....Martin Van Buren Indian Peace Medal, 1837. Silver. Third Size. First Reverse. J. IP.19, Pr.44, B.34. Extremely Fine. Obverse signed FURST F. 50.9mm. Rims 2.6 - 2.7mm thick. 794.7 gns. An attractive, fairly high grade example of this size. Deep silver gray color on both sides. Holed at the top; plain round loop. Minor handling marks only. This size is known in silver originals and copper restrikes. It may be the commonest of all the Van Buren sizes. The cataloguer has 10 auction records over the past 21 years including Kosoff's and Dreyfuss'. Carlson's research yielded only 5 auction records for a silver 51mm Van Buren, however. Most of the smallest Van Burens seem to come in heavily worn condition, suggesting they are the survivors of awarded medals and not remainders left over after 1841.

Ex F.C.C. Boyd Estate.
