Description 1739 Admiral Vernon Medal, Porto Bello, -- Environmental Damage -- NGC Details. Fine. Betts-Unlisted, Adams PBvb 10-R, R.7. The exergue on the obverse contains a clamshell design at the top center, with decorative sprigs on either side. The portraits are known for having "fish-eyes," though only Vernon's portrait reveals enough detail on this piece to discern the eye detail due to the level of wear. Brown and tan coloration predominates, with corrosion appearing on both sides. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1,527.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
