Early American and Betts Medals

1763 Treaty of Hubertusburg. Silver. 44.7 mm. 21.8 grams. By Leonhard Oexlein. Betts-446. AU-55 (NGC).
A bright prooflike example with reflective fields supporting boldly impressed devices. Brilliant apart from subtle reddish-gold peripheral highlights, this is a lovely piece with only minor handling marks and the barest trace of rub to the high points. As the Seven Years War (1756 to 1763) drew to an end, the Treaty of Paris closed the tensions that defined the American theater of conflict, while the Treaty of Hubertusburg wrapped up loose ends among the European combatants soon thereafter.
