(1892-93) Columbian World’s Fair Saint Gaudens-Barber Medal Elgit-90 Bronze Awarded to Sociedad Rural Argentina with Original Box PCGS SP65BN

There is a veritable cornucopia of material associated with the 1892-1893 Columbian World’s Fair that includes coins, medals, programs, tickets and any manner of badges, magazine articles, photographs and other materials. Of particular note to the numismatist are the medals designed in a joint effort by Augustus Saint Gaudens and Charles Barber. These large, nearly three inch diameter medals are prized by collectors today, but are seldom offered in gem condition or with their original box. This piece is a warm brown with glints of lighter copper highlights and devoid of corrosion, verdigris or other surface insults. The included box has some spotting on both top and bottom and opens up to reveal deep blue velvet interior with circular cut out center piece that was designed to hold the medal. Overall the box is in very good condition.
