    1781 Dutch Victory, Mint State
    Betts-583, Silver

    Betts-583. 1781 Dutch Victory. Silver. Mint State. 44.8 mm, 29.8 gm. Reverse signed by Johann Georg Holtzhey. This medal commemorates the Dutch victory off Cadiz between two Dutch ships, the Den Briel and Castor and two British frigates, the Flora and Crescent. The two Dutch captains, Gerardus Oorthuys and Pieter Melvill van Carnbee respectively, were considered naval heroes upon their return to the Netherlands. The obverse depicts the battle. The trident of Neptune standing erect in the open ocean appears on the reverse. Large portions of the fields retain reflectivity on this lovely medal. Toning is present, with the hues including peach, gold, rich copper, sky blue, red, green, orange, and olive-green. The few scattered marks present are not distracting.
    From The Skyler Liechty Collection.
