1876 Centennial medals and medalettes
"1876" Washington by Soley - Liberty Bell Medalet. Second Liberty Bell Die. Copper. 18 mm - Musante GW-470, Baker-403A PCGS MS64RB POP 1/0 - Ex-Holt
I recently picked up this Brian Holt token. It's an Anton Paquet bust attributed to George Soley and I was wondering how is the Soley connection made for this piece?
- Was this struck on the the 1876 International Expo in Philadelphia?
- Are the dies the same as other Soley pieces?
For full info, PCGS calls this MS64RB POP 1/0, but there is a higher grade in brown, a MS65BN POP 1/0, the nicely toned Baker specimen.
