Details

1869 H.R. Linderman Director of the U.S. Mint medal. Bronze, 76.6 mm. Julian MT-6. About Uncirculated. Attractive mahogany bronzed surfaces show good gloss and some light reflectivity, along with the usual light blue and gold undertones. Some light friction is seen, minor scattered marks, no spots or rim bruises. A popular portrait piece by William Barber, depicting the man most responsible for the great preponderance of U.S. pattern coinage (and the Class III 1804 dollars, among other pieces de caprice). This medal was first struck in 1872, as Linderman was rising to another term as Mint Director, a position he would occupy until 1878. A reduction of this portrait appeared on the 1879 U.S. Assay Commission medal. According to Carl Carlson's research work, just 45 examples of this medal were struck. Most, I suspect, were given out by Linderman to his friends.
