This variety of the medal pictured below has the date of JUNE 4, instead of 7 & is missing the stop after JUNE. It is only listed In BHM Vol. 3., in the corrections & additions for Vol 1 & 2 & therefore no rarity is given, as Brown had never seen one, Brown explains he has been informed of the WM variant example, which was in a private collection, it was pierced & suspended from a red ribbon, the ribbon possibly not contemporary.

 

So obviously this is an extremely rare find as the more common one, dated 7 is listed as R. for rare, this should probably be RRRR.

 

The condition is a nice bonus. June the 4th was when the Lords passed the act, the 7th when it received the Royal assent & passed into law. Brown does not mention the missing foliage on the reverse.
