Assay Commission Medals

1872 United States Assay Commission Medal. Silver. 33 mm. By William Barber. JK AC-11a. Rarity-6. Specimen-63 (PCGS).
A beautiful specimen, both sides are fully prooflike in finish with reflective fields that contrast appreciably with sharply defined, satin to softly frosted devices. Pleasingly smooth in hand with lovely iridescent overtones of reddish-rose to a base of light antique silver tinting. The obverse design of the 1872 Assay Commission medal is similar to that used on the 1870 medals, Chief Engraver William Barber simply preparing a new die so that he could focus his attention on proposed designs for a new trade dollar. Only 25 examples of this type were struck in the Philadelphia Mint during February 1872. Scarce.
PCGS# 512401.
