    Silver 1896 Assay Commission Medal, Julian AC-40

    1896 Assay Commission Medal. MS60 Uncertified. Julian AC-40, R.5. Silver, 33.7 mm., 356.5 grains. A bust of Grover Cleveland faces right on the obverse with his name in the fields. R.W. Julian described the reverse: "Legend THE MINT OF THE UNITED STATES ANNUAL ASSAY 1896 around ornate vignette of woman in classical pose, wearing a chiton, and holding up a pair of scales with her left hand; to the right a helmeted head of Pallas facing right, in the form of a Greek coin. Olive branch below."
    Matte surfaces with deep pewter-gray color and faint traces of blue toning, perhaps as made. Apparently less than 40 examples of the 1896 Assay Commission medal were coined in silver, with an additional quantity in copper.
