Great Britain, copper alloy Admiral Vernon medal, Vernon and Lezo / Porto Bello, 1739, ex-Adams, ex-Adams, ex-Chao, ex-Ferrari. AC-PBvl1A. 38 mm, 14.39 grams. Mint State with fairly bright brass color and luster, choice strike with every single detail sharp and clear, plus tall rims, a popular type for its historical inaccuracy portraying a kneeling Lezo capitulating to Vernon (which never happened, let alone at Porto Bello). XRF: 48.72% copper, 49.45% zinc, 1.35% lead. Pedigreed to the John Adams Collection (with his handwritten tag), the Fernando Chao Collection and the Jorge Ferrari Collection.
