Millard Fillmore Indian Peace Medal, 1850. Silver. Middle Size. J.IP.31, Pr.48,  B.47. Extremely Fine....Millard Fillmore Indian Peace Medal, 1850. Silver. Middle Size. J.IP.31, Pr.48, B.47. Extremely Fine. Obverse signed S.ELLIS; reverse signed J.WILLSON. 63.2mm. Rims 3.8 - 4.6mm thick. 1,602.8 gns. Both sides are pale silver in color. There is considerable original reflectivity on the surfaces despite having been cleaned. Neatly holed at the top; no loop. This size is known in silver originals and copper restrikes. This medal seems to appear with some regularity on the market. The cataloguer has records of 10 examples offered for sale in the past 20 years including Garrett's circulated proof (lot 1925) and the Schenkel, Dreyfuss, and New York Public Library sale specimens. Carlson's research yielded only 12 auction records for a silver 62mm Fillmore, all covering the seven or fewer examples known to him.

Ex William T. Anton, Jr. on November 5, 1965.
