    Circa 1683 Charles II Presentation Medal, AU55
    MI-595-277, Morin Figure 5, Struck in Silver

    Undated (Circa 1683) Great Britain Charles II Presentation Medal, MI-595-277, Silver, AU55 NGC. Eimer-267. 53mm. Signed by J. Roettiers (his initial R appears on the bust truncation). The John J. Ford Jr. Collection, Part XVI included six examples of the 1683 Charles II Presentation medal in silver as well as two gilt pieces. At that time, cataloger Michael Hodder explained that while no documentary evidence exists proving these were distributed in North America, "Mr. Ford thought highly enough of the medal in a presentation context to have collected several examples of it. Chris Schenkel, who was a student of Ford's when it came to Indian medals, also included a specimen in his own collection." A gilt example formed part of W.W.C. Wilson's collection (Wayte Raymond, 11/1925), lot 924. Wear and contact marks are trivial. This Choice AU representative is attractively toned.
    Ex: A.H. Baldwin; John J. Ford Jr. (10/29/1982); Donald G. Partrick.
