George III Indian Peace Medal. Undated. Largest size. First obverse. Adams 7.1;  census specimen number...George III Indian Peace Medal. Undated. Largest size. First obverse. Adams 7.1; census specimen number uncertain. Choice Very Fine. Silver. Solid. Two-piece construction, body plate and encircling rim. 79.1mm. 1,462.0 gns. Unsigned dies. Armored bust right of George III double row of curls, seven rivets (Obverse 1); royal Arms, paw to N (Reverse A). Ornamental loop (probably repositioned) of the type seen on the Lion and Wolf and solid Adams 7.1 George III medals offered earlier, unlike that seen on the shell Adams 7.1 and the 7.2 or 7.3 medals to come.

Light silver gray, once cleaned. Scratched severely in the right reverse field, lightly elsewhere. The flan appears bent at 7-8:00 on the obverse but this is probably a manufacturing defect more than mishandling. Clear evidence on both sides of bevelling around the outside of the struck plate, to allow for inletting into the encircling rim. This method of manufacture seems not to have been the norm. Perfect obverse state. Triple struck. Mr. Ford did not supply Mr. Adams with enough particulars on all the medals he said he owned to allow for certain identification of each one in Mr. Adams' listings.

Ex Robert Brule (Montreal) on June 8, 1961, said ex C.A. Laframboise.
