1889 Inaugural Centennial Medal. Uniface. Cast Bronze. 93 mm x 75.3 mm, oval. 2.2 mm to 3.2 mm thick. By Augustus Saint-Gaudens and Philip Martiny. Douglas-53, var. Extremely Fine. This apparently unpublished Washington oval presents the same half-length Washington bust as the familiar cast medallion, in slightly smaller size. It is wholly without inscription or artists name and may be an aftercast with a finished medallion as its casting model. The back bears remnants of adhesive. Light golden-brown patina. Rare and unusual. From the Richard Jewell Collection. Earlier from our sale of the Geraldine Rockefeller Dodge Collection, June 2012 Baltimore Auction, lot 338.
