    Description

    William Henry Harrison: Extremely Rare Inauguration Medal.
    WHH-1840-22, 38 mm white metal. Harrison appears on horseback on the obverse, captioned "9th President of the United States". The reverse shows the Capitol and reads "Inauguration Medal March 4 1841". The obverse displays very well. The central device on the reverse has wear and the application of some silver substance or paint. The example here is distinctly superior to those in the famed Charles McSorley and Merrill Berman collections. A singular opportunity to acquire what is considered the "Holy Grail" of Harrison medals.

    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.
