Ulysses Grant Indian Peace Medal, 1871. Silver. J.IP.42, Pr.53, B.57.  Choice Brilliant Proof.  63.7mm....Ulysses Grant Indian Peace Medal, 1871. Silver. J.IP.42, Pr.53, B.57. Choice Brilliant Proof. 63.7mm. Rims 4.9 - 5.4mm thick. 1,837.9 gns. Another gorgeous example of this medal. The obverse and reverse of this example are an even, lovely satiny gray in color. The surfaces are brightly reflective and fully prooflike. Not holed. Virtually no handling marks. This size is known in silver originals and both 19th and 20th c. restrikes and copper restrikes. This appears to be a 19th c. restrike. It is a bit over 300 grains heavier than the holed example in the previous lot and the same over the two pedigreed Grants in LaRiviere:1131 and 1132.

Ex J.D. Ferguson on August 12, 1965.
