Unlisted Birth of the Prince of Wales Medal 1841 RRRR?

Recommended Posts

Obv; Victoria & Albert left, around VICTORIA BRITAN REGINA, ET ALBERT SAX COBURG GOTHA PRINCEPS HALLIDAY

 

Rev: Britannia holding the new born above 3 shields(G.B., Royal,, S.C.G.) topped with the Prince of Wales Plumes, around H.R.H. ALBERT EDWARD PRINCE OF WALES. T.H.F.

 

Exe: BORN NOV. 9.1841

The ground is shown uneven with a hill behind the shields and perhaps is meant to represent Wales?

 

Silvered WM. 33mm by Thomas Halliday unlisted.

 

Most of the few medals that were issued for his birth are rated as RRR. This being unlisted, RRRR?

 

Halliday issued another medal for the birth BHM#1992 in WM R 45mm so perhaps he had second thoughts about the prominent naked prince on this medal and decided not to issue it. I have never seen it before.
