    1857 Buchanan Inauguration Medal
    MS61, White Metal

    1857-Dated James Buchanan Inauguration Medal MS61 NGC. DeWitt-JB-1856-1. White metal. 61 mm. The reverse peripheral legend reads: THE UNION MUST AND SHALL BE PRESERVED, ironic given Buchanan's inaction regarding Southern secession. The Sullivan reference states that the dies were engraved by Anthony Paquet. A well-struck and satiny specimen with a lightly marked obverse field and occasional granularity, particularly along the lower-reverse margin.
