1777 Horatio Gates at Saratoga Medal. Betts-557, Julian MI-2. Bronze, 55.5 mm. SP-64 BN (PCGS).1359.9 grains. Like most Gates medals, struck at the U.S. Mint from original dies sometime in the 19th century. Glossy and supremely attractive rich chocolate brown with smooth surfaces. Only trivial marks are seen, including a nearly horizontal hairline scratch in the right obverse field beneath E of STRENUO and a tiny rim nick on the reverse rim at 3:00. <p><p>Struck from a fascinating intermediate state of the dies, with a fine die crack from the obverse border below I of DUCI to the back of Gates head. The reverse die is significantly earlier than sometimes seen, preceding the heavy rim cuds present on specimens like Adams (2019) lots 2017-2020 and most others seen. This indicates that the notable but shallow die crack observed here was repaired, polished away, forever altering the basining and look of this obverse. Your cataloger has probably seen as many of these as anyone, but doesnt recall seeing this obverse crack before. The early state of the reverse crack is nearly identical to the example sold in our August 2013 ANA sale as lot 1020, though that piece shows no evidence of this obverse crack. The earliest state seen is on the Ford:193-SBG 9/2009:6094 example, which was struck even before the silver example in the famous Washington-Webster Comitia Americana set at the Massachusetts Historical Society. That piece has the distinction of being struck in Paris before the dies were brought to the United States; they were deposited at the Philadelphia Mint about 1801.PCGS# 528912.<strong>To view supplemental information and all items from the Sydney F.
