Zachary Taylor Indian Peace Medal, 1849. Silver. First Size. Second Reverse. J. IP.27, Pr.47, B.41....Zachary Taylor Indian Peace Medal, 1849. Silver. First Size. Second Reverse. J. IP.27, Pr.47, B.41. About Uncirculated. 75.6mm. Rims 4.6 - 4.9mm thick. 2,270.0 gns. Fairly even medium gray in color on both sides with lovely russet, gold, and pale blue iridescence. Holed at the top; no loop. The fields are brightly reflective and semi-prooflike. Some light abrasions, pin scratches around the hole. This size is known in silver originals with the 1846 reverse, copper restrikes with both reverses, and aluminum with the 1846 reverse. Carlson's research yielded only 4 auction records for a silver 76mm Taylor. There was a pedigreed 76mm with the 1846 reverse in LaRiviere:1129 and a lovely AU Type II reverse example in Stack's 2002 Americana Sale. Garrett's Type II reverse silver 76mm Taylor (lot 1924) was graded EF at the time and Bowers sold another silver in his September, 1984 auction (lot 3286). The aluminum specimen may be seen in Stack's 2000 Americana Sale.
