James Buchanan Indian Peace Medal, 1857. Silver. Second Size. J.IP.35, Pr.50, B. 51. Fine to Very...James Buchanan Indian Peace Medal, 1857. Silver. Second Size. J.IP.35, Pr.50, B. 51. Fine to Very Fine. Obverse signed S.ELLIS.SC; reverse signed J.WILLSON. DEL & SC. 62.6mm. Rims 3.4 - 3.8mm thick. 1,535.5 gns. Medium silver gray in color on both sides making a decent looking medal with good eye appeal. Neatly holed at the top; twisted wire replacement loop. Minor handling marks commensurate with wear. This size is known in silver originals; none seem to have been restruck in copper for collectors. Carlson's research yielded only 7 auction records for a silver 62mm Buchanan. The cataloguer has records of the sale of only two different specimens, including the one in lot 280 of Presidential's June 25, 1988 sale and a flatly struck VF sold by private treaty in 1997.

Ex Jim Cope on August 20, 1978.
