    Description

    James Buchanan: Large and Desirable 1856 Campaign Rebus Medal. JB-1856-2, 47 mm, white metal. A beautifully designed and executed medal which uses a clever rebus to state its message. A buck and a cannon appear on a starry field. Properly read, it says: "Buchanan and Breckinridge". Has a few light edge dings, typical for a large heavy medal. Overall an excellent example.
