Great Britain, copper alloy Admiral Vernon medal, Vernon and Brown / Porto Bello, 1739, ex-Adams, ex-Adams, ex-Chao, ex-Ferrari. AC-PBvb16Y. 40 mm, 14.33 grams. XF with traces of luster and brassy color, tall rims, rather cartoonish portraits with short, thin legs (one of Vernon's inadvertently terminating in a cloven hoof), also with a puff of dark toning behind Brown that anyone with a sense of humor would interpret as the passing of gas. XRF: 53.11% copper, 44.98% zinc, 1.19% lead. Pedigreed to the John Adams Collection (with his handwritten tag), the Fernando Chao Collection and the Jorge Ferrari Collection.
