Silver George III Revolutionary War Era Indian Peace Medal Actually Native American Indian Chief Worn Circa 1776
c. 1776 Revolutionary War Period, George III Indian Peace Medal, Large Size, Struck in Silver, Adams-7.2, Jamieson-17. Choice Extremely Fine to About Uncirculated.
Adams-7.2, Jamieson-17. 79 mm. Perhaps the finest existing Silver Adams-7.2, Jamieson-17 example and absolutely the finest quality available to collectors. Obverse of this undated medal has an armored Portrait of King George III facing right, Type with 6 Rivets in his Armor above the sash. The reverse has the British coat of arms, supported by a Crowned Lion and a Unicorn. This historic Silver Peace medal is in excellent condition. It is lightly toned golden-russet and light blue with some attractive luster and with a minimum of wear or small scratches from having been actually worn by a Native American Indian Chief. There is a die break as made, extending upwards from the King's shoulder. The rivet for the suspension loop is present with a drilled hole beside it as intended. The original loop must have broken, causing the Indian Chief to drill a hole to suspend this important medal from a cord. According to research by John W. Adams, the Type 7 medal was first seen in America in the summer of 1776. Adams' research records 15 known examples of this variety, only 10 of which are in private hands, the others are secured in museums.

Now nearly two decades later, today's current collector market is far more active and in tune with Native American Indian history. An outstanding addition to any Revolutionary War Era, North American Indian Peace Medal collection.
