Morin 8, p. 22 (Les medailles décernées aux Indiens, Ottawa, 1916), Medallic Illustrations 277. Silver. 53.7mm. 1,006.0 gns. Bust right; grand Arms and supporters. About Uncirculated. Deeply toned, the reverse in gunmetal gray. Prooflike. From the same dies as all six of these in the Ford Collection. There appears to be no documentary evidence that medals of this type were presented to elite Native Americans. Mr. Ford thought highly enough of the medal in a presentation context to have collected several examples of it. Chris Schenkel, who was a student of Ford's when it came to Indian medals, also included a specimen in his own collection. Chris' medal was featured in the 1985 National Portrait Gallery's exhibition at the Smithsonian Institution. The present writer also catalogued Chris' medal, a prooflike Unc. that sold for $990 in November, 1990.

Ex A.H. Baldwin & Sons, Ltd. on June 23, 1969; said ex O'Byrne Collection.
