1852 Henry Clay Memorial Medal. Bronzed Copper. 76.5 mm. By Charles Cushing Wright. Julian PE-8. Choice About Uncirculated. Appealing semi-reflective brown mahogany patina. Only the slightest whisper of wear on Clays hair and ear, as well as on the knuckles of the hand on the reverse. Housed in a modern hinged case by Flato Incorporated of New York that is not original to the medal.This medal was engraved by Charles Cushing Wright, but it cannot be proved that it was struck by the U.S. Mint. It is known that Wrights personal workshop was not equipped to produce large medals; what is not known is whether this 76 mm piece was beyond his capabilities. Julian assumes that it was, and includes it in his United States Mint medals catalog. It certainly has the appearance of other Mint medals of the period, and is larger than any piece Wright was known to have produced on his own.
