1840 William Henry Harrison. DeWitt-WHH 1840-1. White Metal. 43.6 mm. Extremely Fine.
Pierced for suspension, as are others seen. A very impressive medal, distinctive in both size and design. Smooth pewter gray finish that appears silvery in the more protected areas of the design. Free of the tin pest which so frequently affects medals of this fabric. Produced for the Young Men's Harrison Convention, held in Baltimore on May 4th, 1840, apparently a Whig rally intended to generate support among young voters. An outstanding example of this rare medal.
