Andrew Johnson Indian Peace Medal, 1865. Silver. Second Size. J.IP.41, Pr.52, B. 56. About Uncirculated....Andrew Johnson Indian Peace Medal, 1865. Silver. Second Size. J.IP.41, Pr.52, B. 56. About Uncirculated. Obverse and reverse signed Paquet. F. 62.7mm. Rims 5.6 - 5.9mm thick. 1,486.1 gns. An outstanding example of this size Johnson medal. Both sides are a deep silver gray with iridescent rose and blue around the rims. The surfaces show some residual reflectivity. Mounted with ornamental attachment pinned through the original hole, the pattern of toning and wear suggesting it is original. Minor handling marks. Mr. Ford believed this to be one of the 25 delivered on December 23, 1865. This size is known in silver originals and copper restrikes.

Carlson's research yielded only 7 auction records for a 62mm silver Johnson. The Bridge Collection contained a F/VF specimen certified as genuine by ANAAB which later appeared in Stack's ad in the Maine Antique Digest of August, 1997. Dreyfuss:5181 was graded about VF but was missing its hanger at the top. Schenkel:4034 was a lovely AU with its original hanger. The cataloguer knows of two others, both graded about VF to VF. A pair of obverse and reverse white metal splashers appeared in Bowers and Merena's sale of March, 2003 (lots 3356 and 3557) that were provenanced to a ''Paquet'' collection.

Ex Phil Lampkin on October 5, 1972.
