Description Alan V. Weinberg comments: Ex Israel Switt, found in the back of his Philadelphia safe - the original owner of the ten 1933 double eagles. An utterly extraordinary high quality yellow gold (apparently 22 or 24 ct)heavy medal that was apparently hand-finished by a Phila jeweler who hand-scalloped the rims and finely reeded the edge. Absolutely unique with but one single auction record (Bowers & Merena) and previously unknown. One of the most impressive late 19th century medals I've ever seen.
