拍品描述 1814年托马斯麦克多诺银章 完未流通。A medal with stunning visual impact and great historical importance. Elegant deep mirrors frame frosted devices with impressive contrast, toned overall with beautiful royal blue highlights to brilliant silver gray. Excellent quality and eye appeal.

Some light hairlines from the casual cleanings such medals were apt to receive in the non-numismatic hands into which they were originally presented, although spared from polishing or anything else nearly as sinister. In fact, full and lively mint bloom remains. Only a few very minor marks are noted, including a minuscule rim nick at 9 oclock on the reverse and a dull dent over the farther epaulet, low in the right obverse field. Among presented War of 1812 medals, quality such as this is highly unusual.

This medal appears to be just one of four known in silver.

Two of the four recorded in silver -- the metal used for presentation to commissioned officers involved in the defense of Lake Champlain against the British -- were in the Ford Collection. The first, a marvelously preserved and beautifully toned medal in an ivory case, netted $46,000. The second of the embarrassment of riches, despite being stunning itself, brought half as much at $23,000.

The present example will be seen by most as somewhat nicer than the Nagy-Ford piece. Before Ford, a silver Macdonough had apparently appeared at auction just four times in the past century, a much fairer representation of the importance of this opportunity than the Ford sale. With its fine provenance and superlative appeal, this relic of Americas "Second War of Independence" will be a highlight in even a world class cabinet.
