1905罗斯福就职勋章 PCGS SP 64

MCMV (1905) Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Medal. Bronze. 74 mm. By Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Baxter-78, Dryfhout-197, Dusterberg OIM-2B74, MacNeil TR-1905-2. Tiffany Edge Mark. Specimen-64 (PCGS).

We are delighted to be able to present an example of this classic piece, among the most prized of the inaugural medals not only for its subject matter and rarity, but just as much for the artist who designed it, the firm that cast it and its influence on American coinage. It inspired Theodore Roosevelts hopes for a more sculptural and classical coinage and directly influenced the design of the reverse of the Indian ten-dollar gold eagle introduced in 1907, also by Saint-Gaudens.

This is an incredibly important American medal.This beautiful specimen exhibits handsome deep copper brown patina with subtle antique gold and pale olive highlights evident as the surfaces dip into a light. Striking detail is expectably bold for the type, closer inspection revealing fine granularity to the finish, also typical. A few swirls of light carbon behind Roosevelts portrait and at the letter E in the Latin motto E PLVRIBVS VNVM are noted solely for accuracy, the in hand appearance predominantly smooth and highly appealing.Most examples of this medal bear the Tiffany mark on the edge, as here, but not all of them. It is believed that some medals that were not considered completely up to the standards of the maker did not receive the mark, however, some of the unmarked medals appear just as nice as the marked ones. The PCGS insert makes no mention of the edge for this piece, but Stacks Bowers Galleries was able to confirm the edge marking with our consignor.
