Julian-MI-16, Late Die States
This piece displays good luster throughout the mahogany-brown surfaces, and the only post-Mint distraction is a minuscule tick on the obverse rim at 3 o'clock. More die rust appears on the reverse rims at 10 and 2. A tiny commalike die gouge appears at the lower left of the U in RESOLUTION (and possible reengraving on the left stem?). Julian notes that this pair of dies, originally pressed into service in 1824, was still in use in September 1885, and the numerous signs of extensive die use on this wonderful and interesting medal point to its origin closer to the end of that long 60-year period.
