    Description

    Rare and Important Large 1825 John Quincy Adams Inaugural Medal JQA 1824-1 in Sullivan, white metal. The most prized of the 1824-28 JQA medals, sought both by political and inaugural collectors. One of the most valuable medals pictured in the whole Sullivan book. White metal is very soft (you can bend many medals in half with your fingers!), and large white metal medals typically show heavy wear and tear. This is a pleasing example with light, even wear, grading about very fine with traces of original luster. From the former Joe Brown Collection.

    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.
