Description 1783 Peace of Versailles. VF30 NGC. Betts-608. Eimer-803. 45mm. Medium gray in color overall, this piece reveals areas of gold toning on both sides when examined closely. "American Liberty" is the translation of the legend on the upper obverse. Louis XVI is depicted seated at left, pointing with his left hand toward a shield with thirteen bars that a woman, representing Liberty, has just placed on a column between them. A freedom cap appears on the top of the column. The reverse legend translates as, "By common consent." The wear is evenly distributed on the high points of the design on this piece. As expected at this grade level, a few marks are present, but they are largely confined to the fields and do not affect the designs. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $3,818.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
