1781 (1845-1860) Lieutenant Colonel William Washington at Cowpens Medal. Paris Mint Restrike. Silver. 46 mm. Betts-594, Julian MI-8, Adams-Bentley 11. MS-64 (PCGS).This is a lovely near-Gem with richly original toning to smooth and inviting surfaces. Dominant pearl gray patina, both sides also exhibit blended steel-olive, orange-russet, salmon pink, champagne-apricot and cobalt blue highlights that are most pronounced around the obverse border. The design elements are fully rendered with a softly frosted texture that contrasts modestly with semi-reflective tendencies in the fields. The pointing hand and ARGENT markings on the edge confirm this as a Paris Mint striking from the years given above. Original dies, Adams-Bentley State 3.<p>The William Washington medal was a very popular one among medal collectors of the 19th century, "possibly because of his family name and the rage for Washingtoniana," according to Julian, and restrikes were always in demand. Silver restrikes from the original dies are quite scarce though, there being none in Kessler-Spangenberger, among other sales. For those who seek a truly beautiful impression from the original dies, this example is unlikely to be surpassed.
