    Description

    1844 Henry Clay Hollow Brass Shell Medalet. Listed as HC 1844-44, measuring 26mm. Features a togated bust facing left with the engraver's initials on the truncation. The reverse reads "Clay & Frelinghuysen Protection & Union." Due to its hollow nature, this medal often suffers from some dents and crushing; this example is no exception. The reverse has several small dents, both sides have some slight wearing away of the gilt coloring on the areas of high relief. Otherwise, a handsome example of this Clay staple.
