Description 1739 Admiral Vernon Medal, Porto Bello, -- Environmental Damage -- NGC Details. VF. Betts-Unlisted, Adams PBvi 14-R, R.7. A Rarity-7 example, the Adams-Chao reference postulates the misspelling of British as BRITIS may have led to a shortened use of the dies, thus leading to the rarity of surviving pieces. The BRITIS legend remains clearly visible on this specimen, though areas of damage are present elsewhere on both sides. Although environmental damage was cited on the holder, a defective planchet appears to be the more likely cause. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $105.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
