1801 Thomas Jefferson Indian Peace Medal. Silver Shells. Small Size. 54.4 mm, 4.4 to 4.5 mm thick. 728.1 grains. Julian IP-4, Prucha-39. Choice About Uncirculated.A stunning example of the most famous Indian Peace medal, an absolute rarity in superlative condition. Richly toned with mottled dark and lighter silver gray on the obverse, somewhat more consistent on the reverse. Toned overall with beautiful intermingled golden olive, pale blue and rose iridescence. Some original luster survives, rich and lively, suggesting the original reflectivity when issued. Traces of two early mounts remain, likely both early replacements for the issued mount and ring. The rims are intact and the fields are level, showing none of the serious dents or other more serious problems that so often plague this hollow and relatively fragile composite issue. Indeed, while the original hanger was lost, this piece is completely intact otherwise without any evidence of reassembly or repair to the body of the medal. This in itself is a very desirable attribute for a Jefferson Peace Medal, an issue that we have occasionally seen reassembled or, even, in pieces. Faint hairlines from historic polishing are seen under the rich toning, only the finest tiny contact marks arrayed around the central reverse device. A few little scratches, now worn, are present over ND of FRIENDSHIP. The obverse legends show faint double striking, as often seen on Jefferson Indian Peace medals; none are noted on the reverse. The Jefferson Peace medals hold a cachet like no other Indian Peace medals. Their rarity has a good deal to do with this, as does their status as the first of the struck Indian Peace medals prepared at the U.S. Mint. For most collectors and historians though, this medal type holds its strongest associations with the journey of Lewis and Clark from St. Louis to the Pacific and back. Jefferson was a strong believer in diplomacy with the Indians, perhaps owing to his childhood on the frontier, where he interacted with natives more regularly than most Americans from further east. Jefferson also knew a thing or two about Indian Peace medals; he even owned a George III Indian Peace medal in his personal collection. In a 1793 letter as Secretary of State, he describes Peace medal diplomacy:This has been an ancient Custom from time immemorial. The medals are considered as complimentary things, as marks of friendship to those who come to see us, or who do us good offices, conciliatory of their good will towards us, and not designed to produce a contrary disposition towards others, They confer no power, and seem to have taken their origin in the European practice of giving medals or other marks of friendship to the negotiators of treaties, and other diplomatic Characters, or visitors of distinction. The British government, while it prevailed here, practiced the giving Medals, Gorgets, and Bracelets to the Savages invariably. We have continued it. There are few remaining small size Jefferson medals of this quality, and most collections have lacked one entirely. Fords two was an embarrassment of riches; remarkably these reappeared in our (Stacks) sales of January and September 2009. Before the Ford sale of 2006, the last appearance was our (Bowers and Merena) March 2001 Lucien LaRiviere sale. The present medal was last sold in our August 2013 ANA Sale, where it realized $117,500.From the collection of Jochen Zeitz. Earlier from Sothebys New York sale of December 1993, lot 639; Charles W. Wharton Collection, our ANA sale of August 2013, lot 1035.
