    Libertas Americana Medal, MS62 Brown
    Ranked #1 of All U.S. Medals and Tokens

    (1781) MEDAL Libertas Americana Copper MS62 Brown NGC. 49.4 gm, 47 mm. Original Dies. Betts-615, Loubat-14. The Libertas Americana medal was voted number one by numismatists in the 100 Greatest American Medals and Tokens by Katherine Jaeger and Q. David Bowers. They write: "Its beauty, its rich history, and its inspiration for federal Liberty Cap coinage combine to make this medal an object of desire for many numismatists." While these pieces are desirable in all grades, an Uncirculated example shows the full splendor of this important medal.

    Medium brown patina covers the surfaces of the present example with deeper russet accents around the devices. There are a number of minor marks, but none merit individual mention. All of the design details are boldly defined. Only about 100 to 125 bronze specimens survive. Listed on page 90 of the 2013 Guide Book.
    Ex: ANA Signature (Heritage, 8/2010), lot 3018.
