    Libertas Americana Medal, AU Details
    Copper, Betts-615

    "1781" Medal Libertas Americana Medal, Copper -- Tooled -- NGC Details. AU. Loubat-14, Betts-615. Original dies. The Libertas Americana is the most famous American medal, even though it was struck at the Paris Mint in France. Founding father Benjamin Franklin played an important role in its design and issue. This is a chocolate-brown example that shows only a trace of wear on the high points of Liberty's hair. What appears to be a diagonal die crack extends downward from the rim through the LI in LIBERTY to the bust tip. The rim break below the 4 in the date is usual for Betts-615. A subtle curved ridge is noted near LIBERTAS, but no tooling is readily evident.
