Great Britain, copper-alloy medal, Admiral Vernon, 1739, Porto Bello, full-length portrait facing right with cannon to right and ship to left, legend THE BRITISH GLORY REVIV D BY ADMIRAL VERNON, ex-Richard Stuart. AC-unl (variant of PBvi12O). 14.07 grams. Apparently an unlisted variety (shocking, considering how well studied this series is) with non-reversed N's in Vernon's name, also a superb specimen in AU grade with nice luster and light color, small edge-crack (and minor striking problem as a result) at top of obverse / bottom of reverse. Pedigreed to the Richard Stuart collection.
