Benjamin Harrison Indian Peace Medal, n.d. Round. Silver. J.IP.48, Pr.58, B.63.  Choice Very Fine....Benjamin Harrison Indian Peace Medal, n.d. Round. Silver. J.IP.48, Pr.58, B.63. Choice Very Fine. Obverse signed C.E. BARBER F. 76.7mm. Rims 3.9 - 4.3mm thick. 3,663.1 gns. Lovely, rich silver gray color with traces of iridescent blue and rose. Holed, no loop. Very minor handling marks, a very few rim nicks. As noted, an extremely rare medal with just 5 noted by the cataloguer. Reverse inscribed in an amateurish hand across the top of the right roundel ''Big Nob'' or ''Big Nose''. The hand engraved inscription on this medal is unlike the style adopted at the Mint and was certainly added after the medal was distributed.

Ex F.C.C. Boyd Estate.
