    1781 Libertas Americana Medal, MS61 Brown
    Bronzed Copper, Betts-615

    1781 Libertas Americana Medal in Bronzed Copper MS61 Brown NGC. CAC. Betts-615. The obverse inscription of LIBERTAS AMERICANA and the date, 4 Jul 1776, clearly refer to the Declaration of Independence signed that date. The reverse bears the dual dates of October 17, 1777, and October 19, 1781, respectively marking the victories of Major General Horatio Gates at Saratoga, and General George Washington at Yorktown.
    The French produced Libertas Americana medal is arguably the most important historical medal in U.S. numismatics, and examples are eagerly sought. The number known is unclear, although there are probably about two dozen in silver and three to four dozen in bronze that exist today.
    This splendid specimen has reflective fields with chestnut-brown surfaces and a few darker patina spots, with traces of high-point friction. Listed on page 90 of the 2013 Guide Book.

    The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
