Details

1887 Centennial of the Constitution medal. Bronze, 51 mm. Choice Mint State. Dies signed by P.L. Krider of Philadelphia, though the style and bronzing is suggestive of the Philadelphia Mint. Choice mahogany copper with faint gold and slate blue highlights. Beautifully toned and carefully handled, a very high quality specimen. Two numismatically significant characters are name-checked on the reverse: Congressman John Kasson, as President, the primary father of the $4 Stella, and A. Loudon Snowden, (who once "vigorously replied to an assault with an umbrella") as Marshall of the Civic and Industrial Department, the former Superintendent of the Mint. A scarce and appealing piece, one whose quality will satisfy the picky.
