Washington Before Boston Medal,
Original Die, Early Strike, Circa 1789
Beautiful chocolate brown, certified
See, Medallic Washington, Volume 1, 1777 to 1860
by Neil Musante, page 45; GW-09-P1


All “GW” references will be found in Medallic Washington, Volume 1, 1777 to 1860 by Neil Musante (Spink, London and Boston, 2016), entire view
The Washington Before Boston Medal is considered one of the greatest and most important
Colonial medals ever struck…In rarity…the Holy Grail!

Obverse of the medal features a bust of Washington, facing to the right his hair in a cue pulled
back with a ribbon. The legend around the image reads, “The American Congress to George
Washington, General-in-Chief of the Armies, the Defender of Liberty.” Below the decollation is
the artist’s name, “Duvivier Paris F. The reverse displays Washington leading his four officers
on horseback as he points to a city in the distance, presumably Boston. On the right of the
medal are a fort, cannons, and cannonballs. Near the city is a body of water upon which are
several ships sailing away from the harbor. The legend reads, “The enemy for the first time put
to flight” and in exergue, “Boston recovered, March 17, 1776.”

All “GW” references will be found in Medallic Washington, Volume 1, 1777 to 1860 by Neil Musante (Spink, London and Boston, 2016), back view

The obverse and reverse text read as follows: Georgio Washington Svpremo DVCI Exercitvvm
Absertori Libertatis; Comitia Americana | and | Hostibus Prio Fugatis; Bostonium Recuperatum.
SVII Marti. MDCCLXXVI.

Washington Before Boston medal, is many times rarer than the Libertas Americana medal, and
is the more historically important of the two. The Washington Before Boston medal, was
conceived as a tribute to Washington and his troops who reclaimed Boston from the British, it
was, unlike the Libertas Americana medal, authorized by the Continental Congress (on May 25,
1776) and represents the first conceived medallic commemoration of a fledgling nation.

Because the Continental Congress lacked funds and the domestic capability to produce a medal
of its conceived size, actual striking was delayed until the 1790s, when the Paris Mint produced
examples in various medals. The most famous example, struck in gold, was presented to
President George Washington by Congress on March 21, 1790.

Due to their non-numismatic distribution, and their size, medals from these original dies often
show significant handling, as they were undoubtedly highly coveted keepsakes that were
passed down from generation to generation. Many are cleaned, but more often, significant
marks or environmental damage are evident. The present example, a near Gem, is certainly
among the finest known bronze examples.

The next owner won't tire of owning this impressive piece of American history. Ranked #2 in

Found under the floorboards of a circa 1790s tavern, located in Washington County of New York.

Commemorative Tray
Featuring relief medallion portraits of Washington, Webster, and Clay; the Declaration of Independence with Trumbull's painting of the signing in the center...
Silver Plate - SOLD


Commemorative Tray Featuring relief medallion portraits of Washington, Webster, and Clay; the Declaration of Independence with Trumbull's painting of the signing in the center...    Silver Plate, entire view
Oval silver plated tray features relief medallion portraits of George Washington, Daniel Webster, and Henry Clay as well as a copy of the Declaration of Independence with the Trumbull painting of the signing of the Declaration in the center. The medallions are by, or based upon, commemorative medals by Charles Cushing Wright often thought of as the finest die sinker of the early 19th century. Washington is from a circa 1851 medal honoring the 75th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, while Clay and Webster are circa 1852, the year both men died. The central motif is a copy of the Declaration of Independence engraved by S. H. Black circa 1859 and in the center is a representation of the Trumbull painting of the signing that appeared on the reverse of Wright's 1851 medal. On either side of the Washington portrait are eagles, one with a sword in its beak and the other with the scales of justice. Both have fasces at their feet. Beneath the Constitution is a panoply of arms and flags as well as the reverse of the Clay medal. The Webster and Washington images are signed "C. C. Wright D & F." The Declaration is signed "Printed according to Acts of Congress in the year 1859 by S. H. Black in the Clerk's office of the District Court of the United States for the Southern District of New York."
It appears that the tray originally had an integral hanger on the reverse of the rim, but that the sheer weight of the tray caused a separation of the body and the rim. There is an old, very possibly contemporary, repair where the separation occurred. Overall the tray is in very good condition with some areas of copper showing through probably due to over polishing and a slight crease near the Webster image. (Approximately 28-inches x 23-inches.)

The Residence Of General Washington
Watercolor on heavy wove paper...mounted on linen
Early 19th Century, entire view

This rhythmic composition mimics embroidery; stylistically reproducing the aesthetic of early embroidered stitches. Tiny dots covering the foliage on the forward trees suggest French knots. Shrubs and plants emphasize and delineate the rolling contours of the hillocks producing depth. The large tree at right foreground is erratically laid out with shaped areas of contrasting color typical of earlier satin stitched embroidered designs. The work is mounted on its original stretcher within the original molded and gesso frame. The sky area has faded; loss of colors due to open back, other very minor losses, all else bright. (Overall: 22.5 by 16-inches.)
