George Washington Indian Peace Medal, 1789 [i.e., early 20th c.]. White metal,  silver plated. Julian...George Washington Indian Peace Medal, 1789 [i.e., early 20th c.]. White metal, silver plated. Julian unlisted, Pr.60 and B.64, similar. A close and contemporary copy of the medal struck at the U.S. Mint ca. 1910. Very Fine. 76.3mm. 2,469.7 gns. Medium silver gray in color, lighter where the plating still remains. Edge dents. Holed, brass pin and silver hanger. A very close copy of the U.S. Mint medal, but there are subtle differences between the two. This is probably a private production not done at the U.S. Mint (the letter spacing does not look professional).

Ex F.C.C. Boyd Estate.
