Scarce 1814 Ripley at Chippewa, Niagara, and Erie Medal

SOLD

Details

1814 Major General Eleazer W. Ripley Battles of Chippewa, Niagara, and Erie medal. Bronze, 65 mm. Julian MI-19. Choice About Uncirculated. Original dies, by Moritz Furst. Choice rich mahogany patina with excellent visual appeal. Just a tiny bit of rub is noted on the highest parts of the relief of Ripley's portrait, the only three-quarter portrait in the War of 1812 series and distinctive as such. A few little marks are noted in the fields, good gloss, no spotting. Ripley, a native of New Hampshire, moved to Louisiana after the War of 1812 and served in the Louisiana Congressional delegation in the 1830s. His medal is not what I would consider among the more common War of 1812 medals. Carlson recorded just 97 struck in bronze, whereas the 1814 Winfield Scott medal had a mintage nearly three times as high (173 struck).
