    High-Grade Boscawen at Louisburg Medal, Betts-406

    Betts-406. 1758 Boscawen at Louisburg. Pinchbeck. Choice About Uncirculated. Dies rotated about 100°. Most of the original brassy golden color remains, with some spotting on both sides. The peripheries still show some luster. Some light marks, tiny rim bruise below 9:00 on obverse. One of the sharpest examples from these dies we've seen, with more original color than the admittedly more even Ford piece. LaRiviere's was graded Very Fine. This is the only Boscawen medal that uses the legend LOUISBURG HARBOR on the reverse. 37.3 mm, 184.4 grains.
    Ex: James Miller at 1982 ANA Convention.
    From The John W. Adams Collection of French and Indian War Medals.
