Commemorative Medals

"1860" (Post 1861) Japanese Embassy Commemorative Medal. Bronzed copper. 76 mm. By Anthony C. Paquet. Julian CM-23. MS-62 BN (NGC).
Rich mahogany-brown patina with glints of crimson-red evident as the surfaces rotate under a light. Sharply struck with a satiny texture and a few light handling marks to define the grade, most of which are concentrated in the reverse field. Struck from the second obverse die prepared by Anthony C. Paquet circa June 1860, which was used to strike examples sold to collectors beginning in October of 1861. Mint records indicate a mintage of fewer than 120 bronze pieces with this finish.
