Description 1741 Admiral Vernon Medal, Cartagena, VF30 NGC. Betts-332, Adams CAv 2-B, R.5. Although there are 31 varieties of Admiral Vernon medals commemorating the battle for Cartagena, the British did not prevail and were forced to withdraw after sustaining heavy losses. Hues of copper, gold, tan, and brown are present on this specimen. Though the high points exhibit wear, this piece displays an appealing degree of detail. A few shallow marks on each side do not pose a distraction. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $199.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
