Description:
Impressive 1796 Castorland Medal, MS61
An Original Striking in Silver
1796 MEDAL Castorland Medal, Silver MS61 NGC. Breen-1058, W-9100, R.5. A very scarce and desirable original striking. These pieces were produced at the Paris Mint for the directors of a company of French immigrants who were fleeing the French Revolution. They planned a settlement in upstate New York called Castorland, named after the French word for beaver, an animal that is depicted on these medals.
The combination of prooflike fields and lovely hazel and purple patina generates considerable eye appeal. There is a touch of die rust on the reverse, near the vessel handle. Light hairlines and a few brownish specks are noted in the obverse fields. Listed on page 73 of the 2010 Guide Book. (PCGS# 653)
