Comitia Americana & Revolutionary Era

"1781" (1880-1901) Lieutenant Colonel John E. Howard at Cowpens Medal. Paris Mint Restrike from Original Dies. Silver. 47 mm. Betts-595, Adams and Bentley-12, Julian MI-9. Specimen-64 (PCGS).
Mostly light silver gray with some deeper blue-gray mottling in the fields and recesses. A bit hairlined under close examination. The edge of this specimen is inscribed with a cornucopia and ARGENT (silver), indicating that this medal was produced between the years of 1880 and 1901. While not an early impression, all Comitia Americana medals from original dies are desirable, particularly so in silver which is much harder to find than bronze impressions. Our Auction Archives illustrate this clearly, as we have offered five silver impressions of various vintages, and more than 20 in bronze since 2006.
