John Tyler Indian Peace Medal, 1841. Silver. Middle Size. First Reverse. J.IP.22,  Pr.45, B.36. About...John Tyler Indian Peace Medal, 1841. Silver. Middle Size. First Reverse. J.IP.22, Pr.45, B.36. About Uncirculated. 62.3mm. Rims 3.6 - 3.8mm thick. 1,539.2 gns. A lovely specimen. Both sides are a nice, medium silver gray in color. There are faint traces of iridescent toning around some of the protected areas. The fields are brightly reflective. Neatly holed at the top; plain round loop. Minor handling marks, shallow obverse rim bruise at left only. This size is known in silver originals and copper restrikes. Garrett's (lot 1923) was called a proof and was undoubtedly a remainder. It later appeared in Stack's sale of October, 1988. The Dreyfuss specimen (ex Kessler-Spangenberger lot 1609) was VF and had been suspended from an engraved Southern Cross style hanger. Carlson's research yielded only 7 auction records for a silver 62mm Tyler. This size may not have been restruck in silver.

Ex F.C.C. Boyd Estate.
