1760 Betts-429 Montreal Taken/Conquest of Canada, MS63Betts-429. 1760 Montreal Taken/Conquest of Canada. Silver. MS63 NGC. 40.7mm, 414 grains. Ex: Baldwin & Sons (7/1971). Brilliant, virtually untoned surfaces with intensely prooflike fields appear on this example that has an as-made appearance. The beading at the periphery exhibits subtle double striking. The Society for Promoting Arts and Commerce medals are among the most popular reminders of the French and Indian War and this design is among the most attractive and rarest of the group. Engraved by John Kirk, this medal features a river-god being accosted by a vicious-looking beaver on the obverse and an inconsolable Canadienne at the foot of a pine tree on the reverse, evoking the Judea Capta issues of ancient Rome. An NGC photo-certificate accompanies this lot.
