Description 1741 Admiral Vernon Medal, Cartagena, -- Holed -- NGC Details. AU. Betts-333, Adams CAv 4-E, R.5. The obverse legend on this variety is a phrase that originated in a letter Julius Caesar wrote to the Roman Senate, "I came, I saw, I conquered." Though this example is holed, the circular area is slightly right of the portrait and only affects a tiny fraction of Vernon's hair and impacts the bottom ship on the reverse only slightly. A tiny pie-shaped portion is missing from the medal near 12 o'clock. This desirable, lightly handled example exhibits a strong level of detail along with hues of tan and brown. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $117.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
