    1850 Fillmore Silver Peace Medal, XF Details
    Small Size, Julian IP-31, Joseph Willson's Reverse

    1850 Millard Fillmore Peace Medal, Small Size, Julian IP-31, Silver--Scratched--NGC Details. XF. 64 mm. Holed at 12 o'clock. Several moderate scratches are noted on both sides, especially in the obverse fields of this light silver-gray example. Donald G. Partrick wrote the following commentary about this piece: "Millard Fillmore is one of the more common medals issued. However, the smaller size, which this is, is much rarer. This is the seldom seen (never seen by me) warrior size" The Millard Fillmore Peace medals were struck in New York, according to R.W. Julian, who attributes the obverse die to Salathiel Ellis and the reverse die to Joseph Willson, who signed the die in exergue. These Peace medals are known in 64 mm. and 76 mm. sizes, and Julian reports that about 160 of the smaller size medals were struck in silver. Although thought to be one of the more common silver Peace medals, only about 10 or possibly fewer examples are known today.
    Ex: Warren Baker (9/24/1983); Donald G. Partrick.
