Great Britain, small copper alloy Admiral Vernon medal, Vernon / Porto Bello, 1739, ex-Adams, ex-Chao, ex-Ferrari. AC-PBv3C. 25 mm, 6.00 grams. Very dark, with only slight traces of original brassy color, but technically AU or better and bold in strike, scarce. AC asserts the crudeness of the portrait and the relatively artistic reverse indicate the work of two different artisans.
