The 8 Presidents Medal by William Henry Bridgens
I'm a big fan of William Henry Bridgens and this may be his largest medal.
I found the following interesting regarding this the restrikes.
Has anyone seen this paired with the 1856 James Buchanan medal? Is the other side also by Bridgens?

Originals with the diesinker's name on the reverse are extremely rare, with restrikes like this the most frequently seen in collections. The obverse die was muled with campaign medal dies for the 1856 James Buchanan presidential race so it is assumed that all such restrikes were produced for collectors around that time.
