Schenkman ME-1 variety, struck from the actual armor taken from the Merrimac.
A neat and historic issue which is generally seen very dark and very rough, which is perhaps not surprising given the source of the planchet stock.
What is surprising is this example, which is the nicest one we’ve ever seen, with deep golden and gray color and very sharp detail for this issue.
Ex Presidential Coin and Antique Co.’s December, 2005 auction, lot #211.
