Great Britain, copper alloy Admiral Vernon medal, arms / Porto Bello, 1739, ex-Adams, ex-Chao, ex-Ferrari. AC-PB2D. 38 mm, 14.73 grams. AU- with much luster and brassy color, engraver's initials I.W. in exergue, well struck and sharply detailed all over. The obverse design of the British coat of arms is of an unusually fine style for these medals, albeit with Asian-looking lion, and both lion and unicorn in an apparent state of arousal, hence most likely satirical. XRF: 50.18% copper, 48.28% zinc, 1.19% lead. Pedigreed to the John Adams Collection (with his handwritten tag), the Fernando Chao Collection and the Jorge Ferrari Collection.
