1848 Major General Winfield Scott / Mexican-American War Medal. Bronzed Copper. 90 mm. Julian MI-26. Mint State.An impressive example of this large and skillfully accomplished medal. Reflective mahogany-brown surfaces on the obverse, mottled here and there with small areas of lighter tones. The reverse in uniform mahogany with no distractions of note. Some light contact marks and areas of friction are noted in the expansive field areas around the portrait, but the reverse is clear and free of blemishes. A couple of edge bumps are detectable -- not at all unusual for large medals, as here. Though the reverse has been criticized as "cluttered" in design, this perhaps only shines further light on the skill of the engraver, C.C. Wright, who was able to beautifully render the complex design into the steel. His remarkable die work features a scene of the Battle of Mexico City at the center, within a circle of six oval wreaths enclosing views of the major victories of the Mexican-American War. Arguably, few would have been able to accomplish such an engraving with such notable overall balance.<p><p>
