    Ulysses S. Grant Silver Peace Medal, XF Details
    1871-Dated Julian IP-42

    1871-Dated Grant Silver Peace Medal, Julian IP-42 Middle Size, Silver--Burnished--NGC Details. XF. 63.5 mm. Suspension hole at 12 o'clock. NGC reports that this piece is 98.5% silver and 1.5% copper. Unusually glossy as a result of burnishing, this piece has hints of darker toning in the protected areas with scattered marks on both sides. Anthony Paquet (1814-1882) prepared one size of dies for the Grant Peace medals. The obverse design is somewhat crowded with text and devices, and the President's name does not appear.
    Ex: Presidential Coin (6/1991), lot 317; Donald G. Partrick.
