    Circa 1714 George I Indian Peace Medal, VF35
    Jamieson-2, Silvered Brass, Early Fur Trade Relic

    Undated (Circa 1714) Great Britain Peace Medal, Jamieson-2, Silvered Brass, VF35 NGC. Betts-163, Eimer-472. 40mm. In his definitive article on the subject, "The Indian Peace Medals of King George I," published in the 1988 Coinage of the Americas Conference compendium, The Medal in America, Ebenezer Nii Quarcoopome argues that these George I medals were privately commissioned by Pennsylvania scholar and statesman James Logan, who entered into the Philadelphia fur trade and wholesale business in 1714, for distribution to Native American trading partners and allies. This example corresponds to Quarcoopome's Type Two design, pairing Obverse 2 with Reverse C. The unidentified engraver's initials T.C. appear on the bust truncation, and the tree has four branches. This strongly defined survivor features a clear portrait and legend on the obverse. The Native American holding a crossbow is distinct, as is his targeted stag. Golden-brown surfaces exhibit traces of original silvering and are not heavily corroded. A small indentation appears at 12 o'clock where an original hanger would have been.
    Ex: Donald G. Partrick.
