Comitia Americana & Revolutionary Era
Distinctive 1781 Daniel Morgan at Cowpens Medal

"1781" (post 1839) Daniel Morgan at Cowpens Medal. Barre Copy Dies. Bronzed copper. 56.3 mm. 73.1 grams. Adams and Bentley-10, Betts-593, Julian MI-7. Plain Edge. Choice Mint State.
Mint orange color, faded down in the fields, with some reflectivity near the peripheries. An unusual and distinctive piece, one of the group of Morgan medals struck at the Paris Mint from the 1839 transfer dies by Barre, but lacking the usual bronzed patina. An interesting and undoubtedly scarce subvariety of this Comitia Americana type.

From the Howard B. Teich Collection. Earlier from the Dorchester Heights Collection; our August 2012 sale, lot 4087.
