1777 B. Franklin of Philadelphia Medal. Unidentified (likely English) Medalist. Betts-547, Greenslet GM-40. Bronze. Specimen. About Uncirculated--Rim Damage (PCGS).45.0 mm. 646.5 grains. Deep steely brown over much of the surface with nuances of faded rose in the recesses left by an ancient cleaning. Though a somewhat glossy appearance is the first impression, closer examination reveals very light porosity almost throughout. The central details are sharp, and aside from some small rim bumps there are really no marks worthy of mention.<p>While the strike was sharp, it was clearly imperfect. Likely made necessary by the high relief of Franklins portrait, these medals almost always show evidence of multiple impressions and this is no different. However, these multiple strikes were not all properly centered and planar alignment of the dies was also off, resulting in poor definition at the upper right obverse and corresponding upper left reverse. Many of the letters of the legend are all but lost due to the combination of the die rotations between impressions and the noted misalignment. Interestingly, these features are almost an identical match to another of these medals sold in our November 2019 sale. Another feature these medals share is the spalling of the reverse die noted under the IR of IRRITA, and in the lower central field. This spalling seems to be almost completely confined to the most poorly struck examples suggesting that a failure of the striking equipment followed shortly after this natural degradation of the reverse die. Among the few well-struck and beautifully preserved examples, including the silver ones, we have only seen one with this reverse spalling, offered in our May 2006 Ford sale.
