George III Indian Peace Medal. Undated. Largest size. First obverse. Adams 7.1;  probably census specimen...George III Indian Peace Medal. Undated. Largest size. First obverse. Adams 7.1; probably census specimen 61. Extremely Fine. Silver. Shells. 76.9mm. 819.3 gns. Unsigned dies. Armored bust right of George III double row of curls, seven rivets (Obverse 1); royal Arms, paw to N (Reverse A). Usual ornamental loop. Rich and lovely silver gray color. Some unevenness in the flan as expected from a medal of this construction (much like that seen on the American Jefferson medals later in this auction). Obverse plate free from enclircling rim from 1:00 to 6:00. Cleaned as all these seem to have been at one time. Perfect obverse state. Adams' research suggests that fewer than half of the largest undated George III medals were made as shells.

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