Session 2, Lot 40

Estimate: 850 USD   |   Starting price: 1 USD Price realized: 660 USD
Bold Gem Bronze Sansom Medal

"1797" (ca. 1859) Washington Sansom Medal. U.S. Mint Dies. Red Bronze. 40.7 mm. Musante GW-59, Baker-72A, Julian PR-1. MS-67 (NGC).
Struck from the United States Mint's copy dies, this is certainly one of the finer examples graded Superb Gem by NGC. Incredible deep chocolate brown surfaces are enhanced by reflective fields and satiny devices. Free of visual contact marks or other blemishes, and identifiable only by a tiny lint mark (as made) in the shape of a J floating free in the left obverse field. Outstanding!

From the Cardinal Collection Educational Foundation. Earlier from our Chicago ANA Sale of August 2013, lot 1128.
