1781 Daniel Morgan at Cowpens. Julian MI-7, Betts-593. Copper. Original. Paris Mint. MS-65 RB NGC on the label but this is the only specimen known in non-bronzed Proof. This is an anomoly that has baffeled experts evidently including the grading service. As such it is Unique!

56 mm. An exceptionally lovely and decidedly choice bronze example of the American Congress – Comitia Americana – medal awarded to Daniel Morgan for his decisive victory against the British at the Battle of Cowpens in 1781. The frosty surfaces are deep and fiery orange in appearance with far more RD than RB in the equation. The dies, by Dupre of France, are intricately engraved in high relief and the resulting strike is exceptionally sharp in detail. Morgan defeated the British at Cowpens on January 17, 1781, and brought the Continental Army one step closer to victory at Yorktown. An unusually attractive and choice example of the issue.
NGC Census for all varieties: 1; 1 finer (MS-68).
