1966 United States Assay Commission Medal. Bronze. 57 mm. By Frank Gasparro and Philip Fowler. JK AC-110a. Rarity-7. MS-65 (NGC). Nice golden patina, matte in the fields and polished on Fowlers portrait. Essentially as struck, just a little speckling in lower left obverse field.According to the Julian-Keusch reference, the 1966 issue is unique in the Assay Commission medal series because its design does not include mention of the Mint, Philadelphia or the United States. We first handled this important specimen in our (Stacks) November 2006 sale of the Norweb Collection, where it was noted that this is undoubtedly Ambassador R. Henry Norwebs medal, as he served on the 1966 Commission along with numismatists such as Ken Bressett, Emil Voigt, Jean Bradfield, and others. His inclusion on the Assay Commission is noted in the Norweb biography by Bowers and Hodder. Very rare, as are most mid-20th century Assay medals. From the Richard Jewell Collection. Earlier from our (Stacks) sale of the Norweb Collection, November 2006, lot 2261. Lot tag and collector tag included.
