1781 (post-1839) General Daniel Morgan, Battle of the Cowpens Medal. Dies by Jean-Jacques Barre, after Dupre. Adams-Bentley 10, Betts-593, Julian MI-7. Bronze. Specimen-64 (PCGS).54 mm. A superior example of perhaps the most beautiful design in the entire Comitia Americana series. The surfaces are rich mahogany-brown, fully lustrous with a softly frosted texture. Well composed and obviously preserved with care, the surfaces are predominantly smooth with only a light, although sizeable verdigris spot within the clouds on the reverse precluding a full Gem rating. This specimen was struck from exactingly produced copy dies made at the Paris Mint in 1839. The dies were shipped to Philadelphia and put into use there, but some examples may have been struck at the Paris Mint before shipment. This is a choice example of this famous Comitia Americana issue, one whose originals are extraordinarily rare and almost never encountered.Ex Peter Tillou, 2021.
