Robert Fulton Medal

Recommended Posts

I have not been able to track this one down yet. Page 26 of the linked book refers to a similar piece in tin, listed as extremely rare. "Catalogue of the celebrated and valuable collection of American coins and" ... By Charles Ira Bushnell, Samuel Hudson Chapman, Henry Chapman, published in 1882.


51GM - most likely some type of lead-type metal, nonmettalic. Gilded.

(Type metal was created to use in the linotype machine for printing presses around 1876.)


Fulton died in 1815.






thanks in advance for all comments and leads.
