1892 Columbus Landing Medal. Bronze. 90 mm. Eglit-101, Rulau-D3. MS-64 (NGC).
Handsome chocolate brown surfaces are boldly defined and have an overall smooth satin texture. Were it not for a few faint spots in the obverse field this premium quality example would likely bear a full Gem grade. Housed in a large custom plastic holder that also includes the NGC insert (#3091721-005). Cataloged as a "Mayer medal" by Russell Rulau in the 1989 reference Discovering America: The Coin Collecting Connection, this type was designed by Weyl in France and engraved by Wilhelm Mayer in Germany. The 90 mm examples, as here, are the largest and most visually impressive of four known sizes that feature this design.

From the Cardinal Collection Educational Foundation.
