Description 1739 Admiral Vernon Medal, Fort Chagre, Fine 15 NGC. Betts-275, Adams FCv 5-D, R.5. Adams and Chao note this variety lacks the skill of the four preceding varieties in their reference and further stated, "Nonetheless, the copyist had the gall to sign his initials 'I.W.'- or perhaps it was he who was being copied." The initials appear in the exergue on the reverse. A well-circulated example, this specimen exhibits rich chocolate-brown color on both sides. A crack, appearing near 3 o'clock on the obverse, is also visible on the reverse. Verdigris is present at the ship above the crack on the reverse. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $94.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
