    1760 Triumphs Everywhere Medal, Betts-427

    Betts-427. 1760 Triumphs Everywhere. Bronze. Choice Mint State. Ideal rich chocolate brown with hints of pastel blue and violet on the reverse. Some old buildup on the fields has rendered the luster subtle, but it's under there. Superb detail on both sides, single nick on George's chin, free of spots and highly attractive. The dies by Dassier are among the most detailed in the series, and among the reverse trophies may be seen a shield that includes the inscription AMERI. This medal apparently exists only in bronze. 41.0 mm, 613.9 grains.
    From The John W. Adams Collection of French and Indian War Medals.
    Seller is donating a portion of their proceeds, and Heritage is donating the same portion of the Buyer's Premium, from the sale of this lot to the National Numismatic Collection at the Smithsonian Institution. See page 3 for details.
