    1871-Dated Ulysses S. Grant Peace Medal, Julian IP-42, Silver--Obverse Scratched--NGC Details. Unc. 63.5 mm. Holed at 12 o'clock with an attached suspension loop. Many hairlines and old scratches are evident on both sides of this piece that has steel-blue toning with areas of light silver. Sharply detailed and attractive despite the impairments. Donald G. Partrick writes: "From a US Museum--note acquisition & inventory numbers on edge--they can be removed easily with zylene. I did not 'cause adds to numismatic history." Those edge details are hidden in the NGC holder.
    Ex: John J. Ford, Jr. (8/12/1982); Donald G. Partrick.
