Great Britain, copper-alloy medal, Admiral Vernon, 1739, Porto Bello / Havana, full standing portrait of Vernon with body facing left, buildings to left over HAVANAI [sic] and cannon, ship to right. AC-HAv1B. 11.69 grams. Darkly toned AXF with minor rim-flaws and spots of extra metal in fields, small patches of encrustation, but good details overall and quite presentable for this scarce and desirable Havana series, which we place before Cartagena (contrary to AC) for chronological accuracy only.
