Session 2, Lot 97

Estimate: 300 USD   |   Starting price: 1 USD Price realized: 504 USD

1892 Columbus Landing Medal. Gilt. 90 mm. Eglit-101, Rulau-D3, var. MS-63 (NGC).
Gorgeous golden yellow surfaces support satiny devices and borders that contrast with semi-reflective fields. Sharply defined throughout with only a touch of mottled haziness and a few wispy hairlines in the fields precluding a higher grade. Housed in a large custom plastic holder that also includes the NGC insert (#3091721-006). Gilt examples such as this are unlisted in the 1989 Discovering America reference by Russell Rulau, but they are very impressive in hand.

From the Cardinal Collection Educational Foundation.
