George Washington Indian Peace Medal, 1789 [i.e., ca. 1910]. Silver.  Julian unlisted, Pr.60, B.64....George Washington Indian Peace Medal, 1789 [i.e., ca. 1910]. Silver. Julian unlisted, Pr.60, B.64. Struck at the U.S. Mint. Choice About Uncirculated. 75.5mm. 3,450.1 gns. Nice, pale silver gray on matte surfaces, as made. No edge lathe lines, so an early 20th c. strike. These were made by the Mint when it became embarrassingly clear that there were no round Washington Indian Peace medals to sell to the public. The dies were cut early in the past century. The first medals were struck in silver and yellow bronze, later ones in lighter yellow bronze with lathe finishing lines obvious on their edges. Early silver strikes as this one are actually quite rare.

Ex F.C.C. Boyd Estate.
