Indian Peace Medals
1757 George II "Duffield" Indian Peace Medal in Bronze
1757-Dated French and Indian War Period. George II "Duffield" Indian Peace Medal. Struck in Bronze. Betts-401. Very Fine.
Julian IP-49b. Betts-401. 44 mm. This historic medal was struck in bronze at the United States Mint from new dies produced in 1882. The original dies were engraved by Edward Duffield in 1757 for the Quakers, who distributed silver strikings of this medal to Indian Chiefs in the Pennsylvania area. According to research by Richard Hartzog, 85 "originals" were struck in copper and 48 US Mint restrikes were made in copper. This example must be one of the latter. The surface color is uneven from actual wear and has a number of moderate surface scrapes and cuts on both sides as shown, otherwise this medal is sharp in striike with nice detail being in excellent condition. An uncirculated example of this medal in bronze sold for $796 in our August 26, 2006 sale (Lot 1094), and another graded by NGC as AU-50 sold for $708 in our August 4, 2007 sale (Lot 2201). Very scarce in Bronze. An historically important 1757 French and Indian War Period Quaker Indian Peace Medal.
