    1875-Dated Canadian Treaty Medal
    Jamieson-38, AU Details

    Commemorating the Signing of Treaty No. 5

    1875-Dated Canada Indian Treaty No. 5, Jamieson-38, Silver--Cleaned--NGC Details. AU. McLachlan-30, Leroux-1191, Breton-29. 76 mm. With a replacement hanger and suspension loop. Cleaned as usual, the recipients desiring to keep the medals "bright and shiny." Scattered marks are evident on both sides with a few dark toning spots on the obverse. The date and "No. 5" have been reengraved, and the rims and edges have been reeded. The medal has all the hallmarks of a genuine example used for presentation. While it is possible the modifications were made for numismatic purposes, it seems more likely that the medal had originally been presented to commemorate the signing of one treaty and reused or passed along in celebration of the signing of Treaty No. 5, which took place not on one occasion but on multiple dates and years across numerous First Nations as late as 1910.
    Ex: Warren Baker (3/19/1982); Donald G. Partrick.
