    Original Dies 1796 Castorland
    Medal Struck in Silver, MS61

    1796 MEDAL Castorland Medal, Silver MS61 NGC. The combination of prooflike fields and gorgeously original patina generates considerable eye appeal for this rare post-Colonial medal. These pieces were actually produced at the Paris Mint and brought to America by French immigrants who were fleeing the bloody French Revolution. Restrikes have emerged in a variety of metals, but this is an original dies example of 1796, struck in silver. Die rust is observed on the reverse, near the vessel handle. Shallow hairlines and a few brownish specks are noted in the obverse fields. Listed on page 73 of the 2009 Guide Book.
