    Description

    Undated (1846-60) John E. Howard Mint Medal, Betts-595, MS63 Brown NGC. Bronze. 45 mm. A pleasing Select Mint State example of the John E. Howard medal with reflective chestnut-brown surfaces. Struck by the Paris Mint from the original dies, likely during the 19th century, but closer dating via edge hallmarks is obstructed by the holder. The U.S. Mint also struck the design (Julian-MI-9), first from transfer dies, then from copy dies.
