1863-65 Young America/McClellan Bronzed DeWitt Unlisted NGC MS65


An amazing piece struck on a special prepared planchet and in superb GEM condition.

This piece shows wonderful darker to medium brown color from the toning on the bronzed planchet.  Nice luster and eye appeal on both sides and a razor sharp strike that seems to be made in higher relief than other Young America pieces we have seen.

This piece is unlisted in DeWitt and Rulau, and was not known to them.  The pedigree goes all the way back to the F.B. Smith estate auction in the 1890s.  We feel this is a 1 of 1 piece struck directly by Smith for his own collection.  An amazing opportunity for the collector and a piece that one sold may be impossible to ever replace.

From the F.C.C. Boyd Collection, earlier from the F.B. Smith Estate
