1759 Victories medal, Victories of 1758 and 1759. Bronze, 43 mm. Betts-419. Choice About Uncirculated. A superb example of this important French and Indian War-era Betts medal, muling the reverse of the 1758 Victories medal and the reverse of the 1759 Victories medal into a single production that showcases the most important British victories of the Seven Years War. Among those mentioned that took place in the American theatre are: Louisbourg, Fort Frontenac, Fort Duqesne (Pittsburgh), Quebec, Niagara, Crown Point, and Guadeloupe. The surfaces show an appealing mingling of original golden brassy color at the peripheries with mellowed medium brown, highly lustrous and free of issues. This is perhaps the finest example of this medal I've owned, with better surfaces than the Adams example at $805; this sort of quality would be called Choice Mint State by the vast majority of those who examined it. This muling is scarcer than either of the issues that precede it (Betts-416 and Betts-418). A stellar example for a connoisseur quality Betts medal cabinet.
