    Circa 1683 Charles II Presentation Medal in Silver
    MI-595-277, Eimer-267, MS62

    Undated (Circa 1683) Great Britain Charles II Presentation Medal, MI-595-277, Silver, MS62 NGC. Eimer-267. 53mm. The Medallic Illustrations reference only notes that "It is probable that it was intended for distribution as a present by the King." Chris Eimer adds, "The portrait of the king places the medal towards the latter part of his reign, and the royal arms suggests that it might have an official function. The occurrence of examples with a suspension loop or the remnants of one also point to the possibility of this being an award medal." Gunmetal-gray surfaces display golden-olive accents on this naturally toned, if lightly hairlined medal. Small nicks in the fields and around the rims define the grade. The medals of this type were included in Victor's Morin's Les Médailles Décernées aux Indiens (1915) and are part of a century-old North American collecting tradition.
    Ex: Donald G. Partrick.
