About the item

BHM-844. 75mm. Edge plain, with suspension loop. By Thomas Wyon. A fabulous piece of British-American history, a type produced by British forces for presentation to Native American chiefs who agreed to aid them in the War of 1812 (a very unusual alliance indeed). Often encountering heavy handling and wear from their owners, this example has retained full detail and seen no cleaning nor altered surfaces whatsoever; contact marks do reside in the fields in line with the grade, but these are somewhat disguised by the pleasing iridescent tone this medal has developed. Chiefly appearing a slightly reflective pink-gray, further inspection reveals rich veins of cobalt and seafoam green traversing the obverse whilst the boldly struck reverse has more evenly distributed vibrant yellow highlights. Beautifully engraved and lovingly preserved, this medal represents a direct g:link to the last significant conflict between the US and Britain whose ending began two centuries of peace and cooperation.
