1850 Fillmore Silver Peace Medal, XF Details
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.
