Ulysses Grant Indian Peace Medal, 1871. Silver. J.IP.42, Pr.53, B.57.  Choice Brilliant Proof.  63.4mm....Ulysses Grant Indian Peace Medal, 1871. Silver. J.IP.42, Pr.53, B.57. Choice Brilliant Proof. 63.4mm. Rims 4.5 - 4.6mm thick. 1,509.2 gns. A gorgeous example of this medal. The obverse is very deeply toned in gray and russet while the reverse is lighter in color (the medal seems to have been lying back down in a cabinet for many years). The surfaces are brightly reflective and retain almost all their original proof finish. Neatly holed at the top; no loop. Virtually no handling marks. This size is known in silver originals and both 19th and 20th c. restrikes and copper restrikes. This is the only medal in the series that does not have the presidential name in the legends. Carlson's research yielded 23 auction records for a silver Grant. The Bridge Collection contained a holed Choice EF specimen certified as genuine by ANAAB and an unholed matte silver 20th c. restrike. Garrett:1929 was looped and graded proof. LaRiviere:1131 & 1132 were pedigreed silver originals. Dreyfuss:5184 was a matte silver 20th c. restrike.

Ex Wayte Raymond Estate.
