Gem $1500 Norse Medal, Thick Silver Edition, Superb Gem, CAC Approval. The 1925 Norse-American Medal commemorated the 100th anniversary of the arrival of the Norwegian ship Restauration in America. 33,750 thick medals and 6,000 silver thin medals were issued aong with 100 medals in gold. The Norse issue appeals to both early silver commemorative collectors and those who pursue U.S issued medals. Few Norse medals have been CAC approved, especially at the top of the Mint State grade. A truly special numismatic item that would be an excellent conversation piece. Housed in NGC Gen 17 (2004-2008) holder.

Choice $260 Vermont Sesquicentennial, Near Gem Original, Steely Cartwheels, Substantial Eye Appeal. Net distribution of 28,142 as 11,892 were melted. Struck in very high relief as compared to other early silver commemoratives. Survivors all show excellent detail but the high relief brought about friction on Ira Allen's cheek. This MS63 graded example offers exceptional steely luster and is so pleasing. Cartwheels are vibrant. Faint speckled ebony toning is concentrated at the peripheries. Near gem for the assigned grade level. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.

Housed in PCG Gen 3.1 (1993-1998) old green label holder with CAC approval.
