    Betts-438. George III Indian Peace Medal. Medium Size. Silver, with hanger. 58.55 mm, 36 gm. Unsigned. A right-facing youthful portrait of George III appears on this piece along with the legend, GEORGIUS III DEI GRATIA. His breastplate includes eight rivets on this variety. The reverse design features the Royal Arms upon an oval shield surrounded by the Garter and surmounted by a crown. A lion appears at left and a unicorn at right, with the lion's paw touching the I in HONI. A few die cracks are present on this medal, including a small horizontal crack at the cheek on the obverse. The reverse exhibits a larger die crack, extending from the lion's rib cage, through the shield, to the unicorn's right rear leg. The fields are slate gray, with the devices exhibiting light to medium silver color. The hanger is free of bends or other disturbances. The obverse rim exhibits a minor mark near 2 o'clock. A few scattered marks are not distracting.
