Millard Fillmore Indian Peace Medal, 1850. Silver. First Size. J.IP.30, Pr.48, B. 46. Choice Extremely...Millard Fillmore Indian Peace Medal, 1850. Silver. First Size. J.IP.30, Pr.48, B. 46. Choice Extremely Fine. Obverse signed S.ELLIS; reverse signed J.WILLSON. 75.8mm. Rims 4.4 - 4.6mm thick. 2,161.2 gns. Nice satiny gray in color on both sides with iridescent russet and pale blue toning. Neatly holed at the top; no loop. The surfaces are brightly reflective and semi-prooflike. Any handling marks are essentially trivial. A remarkable example. This size is known in silver originals and matte silver, copper and aluminum restrikes.

Carlson's research yielded only eight auction records for a silver 76mm Fillmore, all covering reappearances of just five different medals known to him. Dreyfuss:5160 was a nice VF example. R.M. Smythe offered one graded EF in their October, 1996 auction (lot 3043). LaRiviere's (ex Sotheby Parke Bernet in October, 1975) was Fine with remnants of a name on the obverse. One matte silver restrike made for Ed Rice in the 1940's reappeared in Presidential's December 3, 1988 auction (lot 262). There is another matte silver restrike in a major western museum collection. The aluminum specimen may be seen in Stack's 2000 Americana Sale.

Ex F.C.C. Boyd Estate.
