McLachlan-150, Breton-110, Charlton-2280. 45mm. 48.7g. Plain edge. Unsigned. Design as last. However, the surfaces exhibit considerable porosity. Both sides show evidence of cleaning, which may contribute to the roughness. Described as cast in a previous appearance, and Charlton notes the existence of cast medals. However, we believe this may be an electrotype, possibly produced during the late 19th century for collectors unable to obtain an example of this rare issue.
