Presidents and Inaugurals

1845 James K. Polk Presidential Medal. Bronze. 62 mm, 5.2 to 5.8 mm thick. Julian PR-9. Choice About Uncirculated.
Rich deep mahogany with superb eye appeal. Well preserved with just a very shallow abrasion in the left obverse field, a thin hairline scratch above the wreath bow on reverse, and a few light scattered reverse abrasions, none of which penetrate the lovely bronzed patina. A handsome example of this scarce and underappreciated Presidential medal.

From the Howard B. Teich Collection. Earlier from Presidential Coin and Antique Co.'s sale of the Charles McSorley Collection, Part II, July 1998, lot 258; our sale of the Charles A. Wharton Collection, August 2013, lot 1053.
