    Description

    Rare, Massive James Buchanan 1857 Inaugural Medal. Listed by Sullivan as JB 1856-1, the largest size medal for Buchanan he had encountered. Also found gilded, this is the white metal variety. Choice, very nearly uncirculated, and amazingly free of the dents and scratches that often afflict medals done in soft white metal- especially those of larger size. A prize display piece from the Joe Brown Collection. Diameter 60mm.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
