1861 Assay Commission Medal J-AC-2 AE. NGC MS-64 BN.

1861 Assay Commission Medal J-AC-2 AE.  NGC MS-64 BN.

First struck in 1860 and lastly in 1977, these medals were intended to be awarded to members of the annual Assay Commission. Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on your position as a collector, during the 1860s mint Director Snowden was having his employees restrike virtually anything he thought he could sell or trade to collectors. And these too suffered from this fate.

A little known fact is that the director’s income was directly related to the profitability of the Mint, and the Mint made more money striking medals than the seignorage on it’s coinage. Designed by James Longacre, of Indian cent and $20 Liberty fame, the design is very reminiscent of the pattern half dollars of the period.

1874 JK-AC-13 Silver William Barber US Assay Commission PCGS SP64

Designed by William Barber, this piece portrays Archimedes on the obverse next to a bathtub, to depict his discovery of the specific gravity test. The reverse has a tombstone inscribed with the name J. Torrey, a noted chemist who was appointed to the 1873 Assay Commission but was not able to attend as he was gravely ill (he died a month later). A handsome piece with indisputable numismatic history.

1875 CC B-39830 50C CTSP:HA THOMPSON TOKEN NGC AU58

1875 CC B-39830 50C CTSP:HA THOMPSON TOKEN NGC AU58

A wonderfully toned example of late 19th century Americana and Carson City mintmarked to boot! While there is a H. A. Thompson listed in Brunk’s book, Merchant and Privately Countermarked Coins, I do not believe this to be from that merchant. Brunk’s Thompson is listed as from Philadelphia and most of his countermarked coins are from earlier dated coins.

1875-CC NGC TOKEN NGC AU55 CTSP:W.L. Powell

Not listed in Brunk’s, this is great piece for the researcher. The only W. L. Powell I could find on Google was from the Pacific Northwest and Northern California. Perhaps ha had set up shop in Nevada at one time. A great coin that will give hours of pleasure.

1876 Medal HK-19 Silver Nevada Dollar PCGS PR63

1876 Medal HK-19 Silver Nevada Dollar PCGS PR63

Designed by William Barber this piece was struck for the 1876 U.S. Centennial Exposition held in Philadelphia of that year. What makes these really cool is that they were struck using actual silver ore mined in Nevada. That, coupled with the incredible mining scene depicted makes this a great piece of Numismatic Americana. Most pieces produced are designated as Mint State. Not this one. One of the few and very scarce Proof examples available.
