Medal, 1864-66, AR, GEORGE WASHINGTON - ABRAHAM LINCOLN SILVER MEDAL, Julian PR-30, Baker 245A, NGC MS61, Cert# 2578098-002. A simple but elegant silver medal by Paquet, marked with a tiny script "P" on the base of the truncation. Toned grey silver in color with light color tones/accents. Very Attractive, Popular Type and Scarce. Size: 19mm. Made by the U.S. Mint, Fewer than 75 are thought to have survived.


Any additional information regarding these would be helpful for my research.
The known surviving mintage of 75 seems low to me.

    @braddick NGC has this info on this medalette.
    "J-PR-30: Records show that 169 gold, and 5,677 silver examples of these medalets were struck. For the Lincoln die,
    some have a “P” on the truncation, and some say “Paquet” like the one above."
    I'll continue to look around. Peace Roy
