Details

Victories of 1759 medal. Betts-418. Pinchbeck metal. Choice Mint State. A stellar example of this popular medal from the highlight year of the French and Indian War. With victories at Niagara, Crown Point (in upstate New York), and Quebec, British forces moved to lock down North America from the French. The capitulation of New France was completed with the fall of Montreal in 1760, but the process was well on its way after the victories commemorated on this medal. Victories on the battlefield equated to victories at the treaty table in 1763, giving all of North America east of the Mississippi River to British control and lands west of the Mississippi to Spain. While examples of this issue are often seen with spots, poor quality planchets, or other issues, this piece is glossy and choice, with rich gold color remaining around devices and smooth surfaces throughout.
