    British India. George III silver Proof Medal (1761) PR64 PCGS, Eimer-686. Later 19th century silver medal by T. Pingo commemorating the capture of Pondicherry on January 16, 1761 under the command of Admiral Sir Eyre Coote and Rear Admiral Charles Steevens. A rare proof issue with an incredibly illustrative design featuring a winged Victoria writing the names of the generals on a tablet. Palm trees and paddles flank the water of the Indus and Ganges rivers with the legend, "Total Expulsion of the French From India." Highly beautiful and scarce with desirable golden-gray patination and iridescent highlights.
