拍品描述 1853 Franklin Pierce Indian Peace Medal. Silver. Second Size. 63.2 mm. 1227.9 grains. Julian IP-33. Choice Very Fine.

Pierced at 12 oclock for suspension. A perfectly lovely example of this rare silver Peace Medal, obviously among those awarded and worn. Pleasing medium to dark gray mottling over both sides, with some light hairlines. One scratch is easily seen just above Pierces head, while other lighter ones are scattered about alongside numerous other small nicks and marks. Though typically such marks are seen as negative in terms of quality, Indian Peace medals are nearly unique in the respect that such marks can simultaneously increase desirability through their identification of a piece actually worn by a Native recipient. This is a piece that was used for its intended purpose. It lived the history, so to speak, and bears the marks to prove it.

The Pierce medals were issued in two sizes, the typical large or First Size of 76 mm, and this Second Size. The dies for both were accomplished by Salathiel Ellis and Joseph Willson outside of the Mint, and delivered to the institution in late May, 1855. According to Julian, Mint records indicate that 140 examples were originally struck in this size, with 22 of them melted and used for the initial James Buchanan medals. While this suggests that the medal would be readily available with more than 100 pieces presumably distributed, this is far from the case. This issue was represented in the NASCA sale of the Kessler-Spangenberger Collections in 1981, our offerings of the David Dreyfuss Collection (1986) and the Chris Schenkel Collection (1990) by only a single specimen. Another appeared in our Tree Many Feathers sale in November 2001, two were in the Ford Collection and we have seen two more since. This one is a new example, but it would seem that the number known is probably still only a dozen, or even fewer. An important offering.
