Catalogue Note

Ellis did not start work on the medals until he was sure the funds due him had been appropriated. The dies for the obverse were completed during the summer, and the first delivery was in September. The reverse type is reused from Buchannan’s medals, but with small design changes, and Willson’s name has been removed.
