    1876 U.S. Diplomatic Medal Restrike, MS64 Brown
    Julian CM-15, Made for the U.S. Centennial

    1876 MS U.S. Diplomatic Medal, Julian-CM-15, MS64 Brown NGC. The original Diplomatic medal was produced in Paris using dies engraved by Dupre in the early 1790s, but unsigned by him. When Charles Barber made copy dies, he included the Dupre signature, along with his own "C. Barber" signature and 1876 date. While the dies for this medal were the work of Charles Barber, it was his father, chief engraver William Barber that notified Mint superintendent James Pollock that the hubs were finished. This lovely example exhibits rich mahogany-brown surfaces with impressive detail. There are no spots or other imperfections evident on either side.
