“1871” (ca. 1872) Chicago Fire Commemorative medal. Copper, Bronzed. 51 mm. By William Barber. Julian CM-13. MS-63 (PCGS). Glossy deep mahogany bronze with a fine satin finish in the fields giving them a pleasing gentle luster. Some breaks in the patina on the highest central points but they are not that distracting due to the complex nature of the designs. Five hundred examples of this medal were struck in July 1872 using bronze recovered from the Chicago Court House bell. The medal commemorates the Great Chicago Fire of October 8-10, 1871, that is believed to have killed nearly 300 people and destroyed more than three square miles of the city.
