1814 George III Indian Peace Medal. Silver. Large Size. 75.7 mm. 1888.9 grains. Adams 12.1. Choice Extremely Fine.Obv: older mantled bust George III to the right, GEORGIUS III DEI GRA BRITANNIARUM REX F.D. around. Rev: the Kings Arms supported by crowned lion and unicorn, date below. Original hanger at 12 oclock. Struck from the usual die, beautifully executed by Thomas Wyon, Jr., and his signature may be seen on the truncation. An extraordinary specimen with deep silver gray surfaces that are beautifully accented by orange, red, pale blue, violet and green iridescence. A deeper arc of toning extends from the base of the bust to over the head, and around the left side of the reverse as well. The fields are reflective and though some of the usual hairlines from polishing are noted, the lovely toning diminishes their visual effect. A few tiny rim nicks are noted at the base of the obverse, and there are a few other little digs and handling marks. This appears to be an awarded medal that was nicely cared for before ending up in some collectors hands. Many of these 1814 medals survive in nice condition, perhaps a byproduct of their capture by Americans (who swapped American Indian Peace medals for them when possible) leading to their placement in private hands or museums. It would make a fine and handsome addition to an historically minded cabinet.From the collection of Jochen Zeitz. Earlier from the Glode M.
