    1865 Andrew Johnson Peace Medal, AU Details
    Large Size, Julian IP-40, Silver, Dies by Paquet

    1865 Andrew Johnson Peace Medal, Large Size, Baker-173X, Julian IP-40, Baxter-58, Musante GW-770, Silver--Tooled--NGC Details. AU. 76 mm. Holed at 12 o'clock. Anthony Paquet prepared the deeply basined dies for this issue that he turned over to the Philadelphia Mint in late October 1865. All 90 large size and 90 small size medals were struck in December 1865 and January 1866. These medals are much rarer than the Lincoln silver Peace medals, with a total surviving population in the order of eight to 10 medals. Boldly struck in sharp relief, this important medal has grayish golden-brown surfaces with an area of crisscross tooling marks at the lower left obverse. Many small surface marks are evident on both sides.
    Ex: Rossa and Tannenbaum (11/10/1990); Jon Hanson; Donald G. Partrick.
