1949 United States Assay Commission Medal. Bronze. 51 mm. By Gilory Roberts and Frank Gasparro. JK AC-94a. Rarity-7. Edge Incuse HON. WILLIAM H. KIRKPATRICK. MS-66 (NGC). Handsome deep sandy-tan surfaces are seen on both sides of this fully original, carefully preserved Gem. The sandblast finish is bold. A few faint speckles of flint gray are evident upon closer inspection. Fully struck and visually appealing.This is a rare issue that was not represented in our (Stacks) November 2008 sale of the Keusch Collection. On the other hand, our Keusch Collection sale did include a uniface reverse impression of this type as lot 5341. The design is of interest to Lincoln cent collectors as it seems to foreshadow elements of the Memorial Reverse type introduced in 1959. This is only the third offering for JK AC-94 in its issued form in our recent sales; it is the finest of the three and worthy of the strongest bids. Accompanied by the original green fitted case, As New apart from a few extremely minor scuffs on the base. (Total: 1 medal; 1 case) From the Richard Jewell Collection.
