    Original J. Q. Adams "1825" Indian Peace Medal AU Details, Julian-IP-11 AR, NGC. Silver, 75.5mm, 160.2 gm. The obverse has a bust of Adams facing right surrounded by "JOHN QUINCY ADAMS PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES" and "1825" below. Engraved by Moritz Furst. Die crack, rim to C in QUINCY into left field. The first reverse shows clasped hands below a crossed peace pipe and tomahawk and the legend "PEACE / AND / FRIENDSHIP". The obverse surface shows attractive vestiges of purple hues which have interacted with the surface to create what NGC terms "environmental damage." However, as the photos show, the surface of the medal is very smooth and clean.. Holed for suspension. An NGC photo certificate of authenticity accompanies the lot. One of the scarcer presidents in this peace medal series.

    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.
