World's Columbian Liberty Aluminum High Relief PROOF Medal at Less than We've Ever Sold One Before
We have one remaining proof liberty high relief aluminum medal in its original round cardboard box from the Kennel Collection. It is very rare to find one in the original box, or even, as on occasionally found, in just the box bottom or top. This is the smaller of several sizes. In recent years we have sold proofs of varying size for from $500 to more than $1000 each. Again, the pandemic has brought demand and thus selling prices down, which accounted for our last sale at $500. I should note that many years in the past I purchased several medals at more than the sale price of this one. This medal is 35mm, very high relief and amazingly struck with stark detail. It is housed in a round box with teal colored top with thin white border and white bottom with a thin gold border. There is an offwhite soft fabric pasted inside the bottom. In the past we have encountered examples with a plush velvet lining. If you have ever lusted for this Mayer-designed medal this is the time to purchase one! You can see both the amazing reflectivness of the medal and also a couple of very insignificant "rubs" in the field. These are not scratches or damage but I suspect they are from an errant finger tip. They could easily be cleaned, but someone knowledgeable in doing so. I would never attempt even light rubbing with an ultra-soft cloth. My preference would be to keep them completely as is. Shipping includes the cost of insurance at the sale price.
