George III Indian Peace Medal. Undated. Smallest size. Adams 9.1;  census specimen 2. Good Very Fine....George III Indian Peace Medal. Undated. Smallest size. Adams 9.1; census specimen 2. Good Very Fine. Silver. Solid. Single piece construction. 37.9mm. 308.4 gns. Unsigned dies. Armored bust right of George III (Obverse 1); royal Arms without Hannoverian charge (Reverse A). Original, ornamental loop. Good, even rich silver gray in color on both sides. No sign of obverse die failure or breakage. Some scattered handling marks, none serious. From the same dies as the piece in the Glenbow Museum. Extremely rare: there are only two examples traced today, this and the Glenbow medal. The Chateau Ramezay museum had one in 1966 but it is untraced today. Pierre Breton illustrated a specimen without a hanger that could have been the Chateau Ramezay's or a different medal. Mr. Ford's example is the sole specimen known to the cataloguer that is owned privately and appears to be the only one available to collectors. From the same reverse die as seen on the George III and Charlotte marriage medal offered earlier.

Ex Melvin E. Came on December 5, 1962.
