Great Britain, medium-size silver Admiral Vernon medal, 1739, Porto Bello, Vernon and icons, very rare, ex-Adams (Plate Piece), ex-Ford, ex-Flannagan. AC-PBvi7H. 12.10 grams; 32mm. VF with nice contrast from dark toning, some old marks and rim-bruises, unattributed "W" punch at bottom of reverse, rare dies (only five reported, and missing in Medina), with specific gravity measure by Adams to be 9.73, hence low-grade silver. Pedigreed to the John Adams collection (plated on p. 92 of his book) and to the Phillip Flannagan collection (Bowers and Merena auction of November/December 2001, with original lot-tag #5223).
