    Description

    1814-Dated George III Indian Peace Medal, AU58
    Jamieson-24, Large Size Silver Example
    Original Hanger

    1814-Dated Great Britain Peace Medal, Silver, Jamieson-24, AU58 NGC. McLachlan-CCXCVIII, Leroux-838, Breton-19, Eimer-1061b, Adams 12.1. 76 mm. With the original suspension loop intact. This is the plate-medal in the Jamieson reference. Pleasing light gray surfaces show a few areas of faint bluish toning. Trivial marks and hairlines are scattered over both sides of this nicely detailed medal that has a trace of high-point rub. The 1814 peace medals featuring the imposing figure of an aging King George were apparently handed out readily. John W. Adams (1999) cites a Captain Bulger, commander at Green Bay, as writing in 1815: "formerly a chief would have parted with his life rather than his medal. Now very few think it worth preserving." These medals may have been distributed in large quantities, but few remain, serving tangible artifacts of the British-Indigenous alliance.
    Ex: Warren Baker (8/17/1982); Donald G. Partrick.
