1901 Evacuation of Boston So-Called Dollars - HK-131
I just picked up the following top pop MS65BN Evacuation of Boston So-Called Dollar. It's one of my favorite designs as it uses the same design from the Comita Americana Washington Before Boston medal, the only gold medal award to George Washington by Congress. This is a fairly common medal, but rare in higher grades. ATS there are 72 certified in BN and 6 in RB. The top pop overall is MS65BN pop 2/0 while the top RB is MS64RB pop 2/0.
What's interesting about this one is that photos show a black mark on the field above the soldiers. This isn't visible to me when looking it in hand but does show up when I take photos with my iPhone.
The photos are below. The one I have right now is the top one. The bottom medal is the other MS65BN specimen. Larger, full-width photos follow the side-by-side photos.
Let me know what you think.
