Catalogue Note

It was not until March, 1831 that Furst agreed to cut the obverse dies for $1,000. The first medals delivered were three examples of the small size (as here) in November, 1831. They were sent directly to the President who was charged three dollars apiece. It was speculated by John Ford, that this medal, because of its high degree of finish, was one of the three received by Jackson.
