1783 Peace of Versailles Medal. White Metal, with Copper Plug. 45.4 mm. By J.L. Oexlein. Betts-608. MS-62 (NGC).A second Mint State example of this significant peace medal type, both sides are appreciably mirrored in the fields with softly frosted, smartly impressed design elements. The copper scavenger is located above the Roman numeral L on the obverse, and it has done its job well since both sides are free of the detracting tin pest that often afflicts medals struck in this metallic composition.From Heritages sale of the Marlor Collection, January 2014 FUN Signature Auction, lot 3184.
