One of Many Medallic Highlights from Our Offering of Part III of the Charles A. Wharton Collection
Stack’s Bowers Galleries is pleased to present a wonderful example of this very rare War of 1812 medal, struck to commemorate Charles Stewart’s naval victory on February 20, 1815, while in command of the U.S.S. Constitution. We have had the great honor of offering all four known examples: John J. Ford had two examples, the Naval Historical Foundation example was offered in our Philadelphia Americana Sale in September 2009, and this example, ex. Dreyfuss, which we sold in 1986.
