    Betts-3 1559 Peace of Cambrai Medal
    Usual Bronze Composition

    Betts-3. 1559 Peace of Cambrai. Bronze, cast, chased. Good VF. 38.8 mm, 1.9 mm thick at lower rim, 20.2 gm. Coin turn. General type as the preceding but lacking the artist's signature. Thin planchet bears an excellent Philip II portrait and sharp figure of Peace conducting her destruction of the implements of war. The chasing in the reverse field above the temple is slightly distracting to the eye, compensated for by the reddish-brown patina that adds significantly to the outstanding visual appeal.

    John W. Adams Commentary
    "Cast with the fields chased. Clearly a finer piece of work than the preceding, but unsigned. From a different mold as there are slight differences between the obverse legends on the two. Slim planchet with patterned, roundish rim."
    Ex: Auction 343 (Busso Peus Nachf., 4/1995), lot 1330.
    From The John W. Adams Collection.
