1876 U.S. Centennial Exposition Philadelphia

Visit my eBay store  
This medal was struck by the U.S. Mint to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of American Independence.  They were sold by the Centennial Commission to help defray the costs of the Centennial Exhibition which was held in Philadelphia's Fairmont Park, in 1876.  Struck in silver, it is 38 mm (approximately 1 1/2") in diameter.  It is known as So Called Dollar HK-20 and U.S. Mint Medal Julian CM-10.  It comes with the original presentation case and slipcover.  The reported mintage was 10,133.  While many may have survived, it is unusual to find one, such as this, with the original case and slipcover.  

The medal has retained it highly reflective fields, but it does show evidence of old cleaning in the form of hairline scratches.  These have largely since toned over, but you will still see them upon close examination.  The fields have picked up nice shades of blue, pink, purple and green toning on both sides.  The case is in, generally, good condition with just a few scuffs, but no breaks or tears.  The gilt lettering on the inside cover is mostly complete.  The slipcover is complete with some very minor scuffs at the corners and a split.  All in all, this remains an excellent example of one of the finest medals produced by the U.S. Mint.
