Andrew Johnson Indian Peace Medal, 1865. Silver. First Size. J.IP.40, Pr.52, B. 55. Essentially As...Andrew Johnson Indian Peace Medal, 1865. Silver. First Size. J.IP.40, Pr.52, B. 55. Essentially As Struck. Obverse and reverse signed Paquet. F. 75.8mm. Rims 6.9 - 7.1mm thick. 2,648.7 gns. A truly remarkable example and the finest the cataloguer can recall seeing. Both sides are medium silver gray, the color accentuated by spectacular iridescent blue, rose, and pale green. The fields are brightly reflective and semi-prooflike. Not holed. This size is known in silver originals and copper, pewter, and aluminum restrikes. Carlson's research yielded only 10 auction records for a 76mm silver Johnson. Garrett:1928 was a looped proof example and probably a remainder. Dreyfuss:5179 was a nice VF missing its mount at the top. LaRiviere:1130 was a pedigreed silver original. The cataloguer knows of two other 76mm examples. The largest size Johnson silver medal is quite a bit rarer than its smaller sister. It is believed that about 25-35 original silver medals survive.

Ex F.C.C. Boyd Estate.
