Description

    Military Heroes Honored on U.S. Mint Medals. Collection of twenty-five medals in silvered or plated brass, all issued by the U.S. Mint. There are thirteen related to army heroes and twelve related to naval heroes, commemorating events in the Revolutionary War, War of 1812, and the Mexican War. Condition is excellent on all the medals, save for some wear of the plating and minor rim bruises. Currently arranged in two frames, each medal set in a cloth-covered recess. The medals range in size from 44mm to 66mm. Originals of these medals were produced in gold and silver, typically for presentation to the individuals honored, staff members, and high-placed dignitaries. Copies in bronze were made later. More recent copies tend to be in a matte finish bronze with slight granularity. These have very strong detail and may date from the nineteenth century.
