Brown and John Reich, struck from the original dies with a fully reflective reverse, the obverse is less so, it was speculated in the Steinberg catalog that the deep walnut finish with some fading red is a finish that can be dated to the late 1860s or early 1870s after the mint had purchased Anthony Paquet's bronzing formula. All three of these pieces are from the Gilbert Steinberg Collection, Part II, (Stack's, 10/18/88), lots 239, 252, and 266, flips included. James Monroe Peace Medal. Copper. 51 mm. 1051.1 grains.
