    Description

    Copper Essais 1834 -1851 plus a Medal, Copper 34mm issue featuring national shield renditions on both sides but without date nor denomination was likely produced about 1834. A French issued 20mm copper Essai dated 1851 produced by Barre proclaimed the new monetary presses used for the decimal issues beginning late that year. A cast silver medal dated 1921 shows the USA symbols and commemorates the arrival of an American squadron that year (shortly after World War 1). All are VF or better.
    From The Dana Roberts Collection and Study Group.
