Comitia Americana & Revolutionary Era

"1781" (post 1839) Daniel Morgan at Cowpens Medal. Barre Copy Dies. Bronzed Copper. 56 mm. Adams and Bentley-10, Betts-593, Julian MI-7. Specimen-64 BN (PCGS).
Rich reddish mahogany brown on the reliefs while the gently reflective fields are toned deep tan, creating a pleasant contrast. A superb piece with virtually no evidence of handling visible. Glossy and beautiful. Struck from the Barre copy dies prepared in Paris in 1839 from George Washington's personal silver specimen, owned at the time and loaned by Daniel Webster. Though the dies were made in Paris and a few impressions were struck, it is believed that most of these bronzed pieces were struck at the Philadelphia mint. Either way, the Daniel Morgan at Cowpens medal is a favorite among the Comitia Americana medals, always enjoying strong demand and aggressive competition.
