拍品描述 1779 (1845-1860) Captain John Paul Jones / Bonhomme Richard vs. Serapis Medal. Paris Mint Restrike from Original Dies. Copper. 56 mm. Betts-568, Julian NA-1, Adams-Bentley 8. Specimen-64 (PCGS).Charming autumn-brown surfaces are overall smooth in hand with a delightful satin texture to the finish. Sharply defined and supremely attractive, only a few faint swirls of widely scattered carbon on the obverse preclude a full Gem rating. Struck from original dies that retain all of the diagnostic markers thereof, including three tiny "dashes" between the words CLASSIS and PRAEFECTO on the obverse, a small concentration of rust above the ribbon that binds Jones hair, a tiny slip of the engravers hand or similar die injury below the letter O in JONES, considerable rust around the letter A in PAVLO, and a slip of the engravers hand on the reverse that joins the top of the letters IB in NAVIBVS. The edge is marked with a pointing hand and CUIVRE at 6 oclock, indicating that this medal is a Paris Mint restrike from the stated era.Arguably the most popular of the early American naval medals, Adams-Bentley 8 was produced to commemorate the tactical victory of a Franco-American naval squadron under the command of Continental Navy Captain John Paul Jones over two British warships protecting a merchant convoy on September 23, 1779. Known to history as the Battle of Flamborough Head, the battle took place in the North Sea off the coast of Yorkshire and is widely regarded as one of the most significant naval engagements of the Revolutionary War by the Americans. During the engagement, Jones ship Bonhomme Richard forced the surrender of the British HMS Serapis under the command of Captain Sir Richard Pearson in close combat.
