Zachary Taylor Indian Peace Medal, 1849. Silver. Third Size. First Reverse. J.IP. 29, Pr.47, B.43....Zachary Taylor Indian Peace Medal, 1849. Silver. Third Size. First Reverse. J.IP. 29, Pr.47, B.43. Very Fine. 51.0mm. Rims uniform 3.7mm thick. 996.3 gns. A very rare size with only 17 (some say 18) originals believed to have escaped melting at the Mint following Taylor's death in 1850. The obverse and reverse are both toned in deep gray with some light blue iridescence. Neatly holed at the top; no loop. Reverse rim bruise at left. Very extensive die rust on the reverse and some showing on the front side, later states than seen on the next. This size is known in silver originals and copper restrikes. Carlson's research yielded only 7 auction records for a silver 51mm Taylor, all covering just two specimens known to him, one each with the Type I and II reverse. Recent auction records include the nicked VF in Presidential's July, 1998 sale ex Hartzog's September, 1991 sale of the Bridge Collection, unhelpfully described there as ''Similar in fabric to the previous Polk and Tyler, an early 19th century strike.''

Ex F.C.C. Boyd Estate.
