Details

1908 Chicago Numismatic Society medal. Copper, 35 mm. Red Uncirculated. Dies by J. Henri Ripstra. Full blazing red, just ever so lightly mellowed, over lustrous and reflective surfaces. Some handling and minor hairlines, some "carbon" behind Indian's head, similar black spot at base of reverse in denticles. Struck during the presidency of Virgil Brand, this medal was struck as a souvenir for members of the short-lived club. Just 18 attended the meeting, but the medal was "presented to those members who were not present, and further issues [in copper] are to be discontinued." Quite rare today, flashy and impressive, a fascinating piece with connections to Virgil Brand from the golden age of American numismatics.
