1951 United States Assay Commission Medal. Bronze. 51 mm. By Engelhardus von Hebel and Frank Gasparro. JK AC-96a. Rarity-7. Edge Incuse CLEMENT KENNEDY. MS-67 (NGC). Splendid sandy-tan surfaces exhibit a virtually flawless sandblast finish. Boldly rendered with eye appeal to spare.The obverse design of the 1951 Assay Commission medal, based loosely on John Ward Dunsmores 1914 painting, shows the first director of the Mint David Rittenhouse viewing the initial coinage, accompanied by Chief Coiner Henry Voigt and (possibly) either Engraver Robert Scot or Treasurer Tristam Dalton. The majestic eagle on the reverse is similar to those at the entrance to the present Philadelphia Mint. JK AC-96 is an elusive issue, and missing from our (Stacks) landmark Keusch Collection offering in November 2008. Accompanied by the original green fitted case, As New apart from a few trivial scuffs at the corners. (Total: 1 medal; 1 case) From the Richard Jewell Collection. Acquired on eBay, January 25, 2016. Collector tag with provenance notation included.
