1857 James Buchanan Indian Peace Medal. Large Size. Bronze. 76 mm. Julian IP-36. MS-65 BN (NGC).This is a lovely Gem whose smooth, satin to modestly semi-reflective surfaces are bathed in rich mahogany-brown patina. The James Buchanan Indian Peace medals sold to the public, as here, were struck using the reverse die of the Fillmore and Pierce medals, which shows a settler and Native American standing before an American flag.
