Description 1758 Louisbourg Taken, MS64 Brown NGC. Betts-410, Eimer-657. Bronze. Obverse signed by Thomas Pingo (1714-1776), an English medallist. Pingo served as assistant-engraver at the Royal Mint in London from 1771 until his death in 1776, with his son Lewis succeeding him. A sharply struck and intricately detailed piece, this medal has tremendous eye appeal, with slightly glossy chocolate-brown surfaces. The designs on both sides are appealing. A few faint marks in the right obverse field are barely noticeable. The reverse displays a die crack near 4 o'clock. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $6,462.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
