    1875 Canadian Numbered Treaty Medal, AU58
    Treaty No. 5, Jamieson-38

    1875-Dated Canada Indian Treaty No. 5, Jamieson-38, Silver, AU58 NGC. McLachlan-30, Leroux-1191, Breton-29. 76 mm. One hundred and fifty numbered treaty medals were ordered from the Wyon family of medalists on March 17, 1875, with the following caveat: "It is important that they should be in the hands of the Minister if possible early in the month of June." A memorandum dated July 18, 1876 confirms that at least six Treaty No. 5 and three Treaty No. 1 medals had been received in Canada and forwarded to Lieutenant Governor of Manitoba Alexander Morris at that time. It likely that additional medals were delivered earlier. The original hanger is missing from this otherwise well-preserved treaty medal. Both sides are lightly hairlined, but there are no major abrasions. Strongly defined surfaces show a hint of golden toning.
    Ex: Donald G. Partrick.
