Great Britain, gilt copper alloy Admiral Vernon medal, Vernon / Porto Bello, 1739, ex-Adams (Plate), ex-Craige. AC-PBv46RR. 37 mm, 15.05 grams. Bold details in AU grade with bright gold color all over from heavy gilding, holed at bottom of obverse / top of reverse, rather tall reverse rim, new portrait with Vernon facing left, a much better arrangement that eliminated the dreaded "flat nose."

Pedigreed to the John Adams Collection (with his handwritten tag) and the Ted Craige Collection, plated on page 82 of Medallic Portraits of Admiral Vernon (2010), by Adams and Chao.
