As Stack's Bowers Galleries looks forward to the August ANA World's Fair of Money auctions, we focus on a wonderful offering of Indian Peace medals. Highlights include: An 1801 Thomas Jefferson small-size Indian Peace medal (Julian IP-4, Prucha-39), weighing 728.1 grains and measuring 54.4 mm. This design ranks #3 in the book The 100 Greatest American Medals and Tokens. Stack's Bowers Galleries previously sold a Choice Extremely Fine specimen in September 2009 for $138,000. These stunning Jefferson Peace medals were distributed by Lewis and Clark during their journey from St. Louis to the Pacific and back. We expect this medal to realize well over $100,000.
