    1782 Holland Receives Adams, AU
    Betts-603, Silver

    Betts-603. 1782 Holland Receives Adams. Silver. AU. 44.9 mm, 27.2 gm. Reverse signed by Johann Georg Holtzhey. The text in exergue on the obverse of this medal translates as, "A Free Sister, acknowledged by solemn decree April 19, 1782." An armed woman personifying Holland appears at left. Her right hand is clasping the hand of an Indian Queen. The reverse design includes a unicorn lying on the ground, with a high rock at left. A translation of the text is, "Tyranny repelled by valor under the auspices of France." Lightly handled, this piece displays attractive medium gray color overall. Closer examination reveals shades of copper and iridescent blue-green. Hints of plum and red are also present. The fields retain reflectivity. The minor hairlines and marks appearing are not distracting.
    Ex: Bowers and Merena (6/1990), lot 5446; Stack's (11/2006), lot 2230.
    From The Skyler Liechty Collection.
