2222. Possibly UNIQUE Jefferson Indian Peace Medal. Rare and previously unknown Thomas Jefferson Indian Peace medal. Similar to Julian IP-3, but a galvano SHELL, not a solid medal. Undoubtedly made from an original 1876 dies copper impression. Nicely toned silver-plated copper, with only a few traces of copper. All the different sizes of the original early Jefferson Peace medals were also struck as shells, joined together. This middle size medal was struck in copper as a solid piece, for collectors beginning in 1861. This unusual specimen is an electro-type galvano shell, with the two sides joined together, as were the original pieces. There is a very fine die crack on the reverse, though the bowl of the peace pipe to the thumb. The medal has some very light wear, and does have some depressed area, as is quite normal on a shell. Choice About Uncirculated, Wonderfully toned silver-grey, 74mm, a couple of high points with some minor rub. A small reverse section at lower right on the rim shows copper, as do some minor high points which are the only hints it is not a solid silver strike. Unholed. Unlisted and previously unknown to researchers. All Jefferson Indian Peace Medals are rare to extremely rare, with early silver pieces bringing over $15,000. For the advanced collector, or for the person seeking any Jefferson Indian Peace Medal, this possibly unique piece should be of interest.
