Holed for suspension at 12 o'clock. A very rare entry among silver Indian Peace medals. Quite well worn and clearly worn with pride for a considerable length of time, nearly identical sharpness to the Ford piece, graded "Fine to Very Fine" that brought $15,525 in October 2006. This piece shows some mottled deep gray and golded toning on the obverse than, upon close examination, reveals itself to be the remnants of a lead-based paint or something similar adhering to the fields. The reverse is a natural light silver gray. The usual scattered marks are present, diagonal pin scratch across date, two heavy knocks at central reverse suggest bird shot. As noted in the Ford sale, Carl Carlson found just seven auction appearances of a 62 mm Buchanan in silver, and the cataloger knew of just two discrete specimens aside from Ford's. This piece, new to the collector community, brings the total to four. The reverse shows the evocative scene of Indian children playing baseball while a brave plows his field in full war regalia, the first appearance of this iconography.
