1835 Colonel George Croghan at Sandusky Medal. Julian MI-12. Bronzed Copper. MS-66 BN (NGC).65 mm. Deep reddish mahogany-brown over most of the surface though the satiny bust of Croghan is somewhat deeper steel-brown and stands in pleasant contrast to the fields both in color and texture. Outstanding eye appeal as one would expect of the grade. As noted in Julian, a specimen in the West Point Museum, believed to have been struck about 1885, has traces of rust or spalling on the bust and a fine crack, which he states "probably is indicative of the original obverse." This example has similar features. The dies for the Croghan medal were the last of those for War of 1812 series to be completed. The gold specimen was not struck until 1837.From our (Stacks) Americana Sale of January 2012, lot 6078.
