Comitia Americana & Revolutionary Era

"1779" (1860-1879) Captain John Paul Jones Naval Medal. Paris Mint Restrike from Original Dies. Copper. 56 mm. By Augustin Dupre. Adams and Bentley-8, Betts-568, Julian NA-1. Specimen-64 (PCGS).
Lovely dark chocolate brown surfaces with virtually no marks worthy of mention beyond a minor obverse spot near 3 o'clock. Sharp, glossy and very uniform in appearance. A most handsome specimen of this famous and very desirable Naval Medal. Marked on the edge CUIVRE with a bee, the Paris Mint mark which indicates it was struck between 1860 and 1879, though it was struck from the original dies executed by the skilled Augustin Dupre.
