E-1139b variety, struck in White Metal. 51mm.
First of a neat trio of map medals on our list, this is a dramatic and interesting piece which can be dated (approximately) based on the place names used, such as the Sandwich Islands for what is now Hawaii and New Holland for Australia. Also of note (and not surprising given the era) the United States is seen shoe-horned into the eastern seaboard of North America.
And this is a flashy, cameo contrasted gem example as nice as any we have seen of this type.
