    1860 Prince of Wales Peace Medal, MS61
    Rare Second Size, Jamieson-34

    1860-Dated Great Britain Peace Medal, Jamieson-34, Silver, MS61 NGC. Breton-24. 60mm. The 1860 peace medals awarded as part of the celebration of the Prince of Wales' Royal Visit are usually seen in the large 75mm size. They are extremely rare in this second size (60mm). One was offered as lot 13 in the John J. Ford, Jr. Collection, Part XVIII (Stack's, 5/2007), pierced but without suspension, and with the following note: "the cataloguer has no records of the sale of another in an American venue in recent memory." An example of Jamieson-34 resides in the Glenbow Museum in Calgary, Alberta, likely acquired as part of the Doug Ferguson Collection, and another is housed at the American Numismatic Society. The W.W.C. Wilson Collection (Wayte Raymond, 11/1925) included an example, sold as lot 944, but it was not plated and may represent one of the medals previously listed. This is a high-grade representative with bright, lightly hairlined surfaces. The Prince of Wales' crest is strongly impressed, as is the date. A few edge marks are noted, including one at 2:30 on the reverse. The hanger appears to be original.
    Ex: Brooks Collection (Bowers and Merena, 6/1989), lot 1807; Donald G. Partrick.
