34.3 millimeters. Pleasing silver-gray surfaces with olive-tinged highlights at the peripheries. An attractive piece, wispy hairlines are only noted under magnified scrutiny.
Issued by J.M. Lageman at the end of the American Revolution, this medal was intended for a Dutch audience. An interesting pro-American piece that implies that hopes for a profitable trade underlie the widespread support for the American cause in many European countries. Sure to make a fine addition to any collection.
