Description 1757 George II, American Indian Peace Medal Restrike, MS65 Brown NGC. Betts-401, Eimer-654, Julian IP-49. Bronze. A restrike of this beautifully designed medal engraved by Edward Duffield, a Philadelphia watchmaker also known for engraving the Kittanning medal, this Gem displays gorgeous red-brown surfaces, providing this piece with exceptional visual appeal. A few faint hints of fingerprint residue are present. As Eimer states, "During the French-Indian wars in the 1750s, alliances were formed between the British colonial government in Pennsylvania and native American Indian tribes." The reverse design includes a Quaker seated near a fire, offering a peace pipe to an Indian. Quakers presented the original medals to the nearby Indian chiefs. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $646.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
