Miller NY-495, struck in White Metal by George Lovett in 1858.
A neat piece celebrating the first Trans-Atlantic cable with a depiction of John Bull (i.e. England) and Brother Jonathan (America) communicating electronically (as indicated by the pants-directed lightning bolts) with the charming dialogue shown along the rims:
John Bull: “How are you Jonathan?”
Brother Jonathan: “Perty well old feller, heows yerself?”
With the ATLANTIC TELEGRAPH SUCCESSFULLY LAID reverse.
And this is fantastic gem example which is by far the nicest we’ve ever seen in this composition.
