1825 John Quincy Adams Indian Peace Medal. Silver. Medium Size. 62 mm. 1,529.5 grains. Julian IP-12, Prucha-42. Choice Very Fine.Pierced as issued, with an early suspension ring that may be the original. We have seen three of these medals with this simple type of loop. Bright silver gray with blue toning developing around the peripheries, legends and devices. Hairlines and brightness remain from historic polishing, many scattered pinpoint marks show wear, indicating this medal saw use well after the contact points first manifested. The rims are nearly perfect, with just a few little ticks at the upper obverse. Light pin scratches are found under a glass, as is a jogging scratch under ADAMS, and a dull mark in the same area. Worn but not heavily abraded, a very handsome medal with good detail. According to the Presidential Coin and Antique auction where this medal was acquired in 1993, the present medal is said to have been presented by the Chief of the Arikara tribe of the Dakotas in the early 1870s to the grandfather of D. Terrett, one William Courtenay (1832-1901) who was said to have been a friend to the Indians during difficult times. Courtenay was a Dakota Territory Indian Agent in the 1870s. An extensive archive of his correspondence and papers appeared at auction in 2017 (conducted by RR Auctions), and included letters between him and George Armstrong Custer as well as correspondence with local indigenous chiefs and original copies of local treaties signed between the Arikara, Hidasta and Mandan groups. A brief study of the auction description of the archive does indeed illustrated that Courtenay was trusted by the local native people, lending legitimacy to the story of this medals past. We must wonder if that archive might have included a note relating to this medal! Interestingly, the first federal treaty signed with the Arikara was agreed to in July 1825, just months after John Quincy Adams was inaugurated. A profoundly historic artifact from the northern Plains.From the collection of Jochen Zeitz. Earlier from Presidential Coin and Antique Co.s 54th Auction, July 1993, lot 272; the Charles A. Wharton Collection, our ANA Sale, August 2013, lot 1044.
