Description 1739 Admiral Vernon Medal, Porto Bello, -- Environmental Damage -- NGC Details. AU. Betts-224, Adams PBvi 6-G, R.5. A change in the obverse design replaces the ship with an anchor on this variety. The environmental damage cited by NGC poses minimal distraction to the overall appearance of this piece exhibiting bold detail and little wear. The surfaces on the obverse reveal subtle shades of sea-green and copper-orange, while the reverse is largely golden-brown and light brown. Scattered areas of corrosion appear on both sides. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $411.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
