Details

1848 Major General Winfield Scott Mexican War medal. Bronze, 89 mm. Julian MI-26. Choice About Uncirculated. Among the largest and most impressive of all medals in the US Mint Military series, with extraordinary die work by the great Charles Cushing Wright. Ideal ruddy mahogany with pleasing smooth surfaces. A handful of tiny marks are seen, just the faintest suggestion of high point friction on the obverse portrait, nearly perfect rims with no bruising, and only two very subtle verdigris spots (one inside the obverse rim near 9:00, the other just below the reverse wreath near 5:00 below CONTRERAS). Excellent eye appeal, better preserved than this large, heavy medal is usually seen. With no disrespect to Dupre's Morgan at Cowpens medal (or Furst, who carefully followed his style on a few War of 1812 medals), the reverse's seven different battle scenes may represent the high water mark of medallic art on any U.S. military medal.
