1860 Stephen A. Douglas Medal in Silver, 1 of 20 Struck

SOLD

Ex. John J. Ford Jr. Collection, earlier from the F.C.C. Boyd Estate on February 1, 1972.

Details

1860 Stephen A. Douglas campaign medalet. Silver, 20 mm. Dewitt SD 1860-22. MS-63 (NGC). Dies by George H. Lovett, on behalf of Alfred S. Robinson, the Hartford, CT numismatist. Deep gray and navy blue toning on reflective surfaces. The cloudiness apparent in the image is a byproduct of the photography through the slab, and the medal itself is bright and attractive, with a wire rim and scant few hairlines. The evocative reverse legend sums up the campaign of Lincoln's opponent well: "Intervention is Disunion" and "M.Y.O.B." or "Mind your own business." Silver campaign medalets of this era are rare in general, and outside of the context of the enormous Ford collection they are extremely so.
