1858 Lancaster County Agricultural Society medal. Baker-339, Julian AM-27. Bronze, 45 mm. Mint State

SOLD

Details

A superb example of this nice Washington portrait medal, with bits of mint red blended with pale blue, violet, and pastel green over lustrous, reflective chocolate brown surfaces. This piece shows very fine guide lines and script engraving on the reverse, as if this was partially engraved and then set aside because of a misspelling. I can make out "Dr." at the beginning of the name (which appears long and easy to misspell), but can't quite render the rest of it -- I bet someone with patience and a good light (or camera) could figure it out readily. There are some hairlines in the area, probably dating to the time the engraving was accomplished. This medal is pretty scarce, and most survivors are well handled. The handsome portrait of Washington by William H. Key makes this a standout among the US Mint Agricultural medals.
