George H. Lovett Medal


1862 Monitor / Merrimac Medalet by George Hampden Lovett. Copper. 31 mm. Schenkman MM-4. MS-64 RB (PCGS).
A fascinating and intricately engraved piece depicting the "First Battle of the Ironclads", pitting the U.S.S. Monitor against the Confederate Merrimac off Hampton Roads, Virginia on March 9, 1862. Sharply struck and displaying a beautiful interplay between the original copper red, the darker copper tones, and flashes of electric blue iridescence which are visible on both sides.
