View Coin HK-1 WM, Erie Canal Completion 1826 UNITED STATES New York, NY 1826 WM SC$1 1826 NY HK-1 ERIE CANAL COMPLETION HK-1 WM NGC MS 61 Medal, 1826, WM, ERIE CANAL COMPLETION, New York, NY, So Called Dollar, HK-1 WM, NGC MS61, Cert# 1657081-001. Rarity-6. Obv. One of the most coveted medals in American Numismatics. Two full seated figures depicting Pan and Neptune, to r. of Pan is cornucopia; in background is lighthouse and sea; below l. microscopic R. Del, below r. microscopic W. Sc.; above all, around Union of Erie with the Atlantic. Rv. In center is New York State Coat of Arms; to l. is section of Canal; in background is sailing ship and distant view of city; below 1826 / Presented by the City of New York; above all, around Erie Canal Comm. 4 July 1817 Comp. 26 Oct. 1825; microscopic C. C. Wright Sc just below center design. Size: About 45mm. The design signifies the joining up of the canal river God, with the God of the Sea, "Pan and Neptune are in loving embrace, with cornucopia showing the fruits of the land, the sea and shore, with lighthouse... and the inscription 'Union of Erie with the Atlantic.' " The other side displays, "the coat of arms of the State of New York and a section of the canal showing locks and tunnel, with the bay of New York and city, and ship in full sail, with the inscription, 'Erie canal commenced July 4, 1817. Completed October 26, 1825. Presented by the city of New York, 1826.' Interestingly, concentric circular die, or lathe, lines cover most of the gray surfaces with the focus at the center of the die. Richard Snow, in his Flying Eagle and Indian Head Cents, second edition, Vol. II, 1859-1869 reference work, illustrates and discusses such lines on page 65. Happily, this Specimen does not exhibit any of the "bubbly" surfaces found on many of these medals, most likely from interaction of the medal surfaces with the wooden container that these originally came in. History: Medal issued by Common Council, City of New York; designed by Archibald Robertson; engraved by Charles Cushing Wright; struck by Maltby Pedetreau. Erie Canal Commission created 1810 by NY Legislature; DeWitt Clinton, later Governor, served as member 10 years without pay. Ground broken July 4, 1817, at Rome, NY. Over 8 years and $7,000,000 later, Canal stretched 364 miles "straight as the lay of the land would permit" from Hudson River to Lake Erie; 83 locks required for "greatest engineering feat of modern times…costliest, most successful project yet undertaken in the New World." Originally dubbed "Clinton's Folly" by many, Canal proved one of main factors in our national development by directly opening West to agriculture; reduced freight cost and time, Albany to Buffalo, from $100 per ton and 45 days (by wagon) to $5 and 6 days; passengers paid 5 cents per mile, including 3 meals daily. By 1836, tolls had paid off entire cost; made New York City first seaport in U.S., passing Philadelphia. Now part of NY Barge Canal System, original 40 ft. width and 4 ft. depth have been increased substantially. Formal opening was Oct. 26, 1825, with vessel Seneca Chief carrying Governor Clinton departing Buffalo; arrived New York City Nov. 4. Long water-parade behind "moved slowly" with banquets, parades, etc. "at every town" en route; climaxed by huge New York celebration early 1826. Fifty-one Gold medals struck; presented to "crowned heads of world and eminent men" including General Lafayette and 3 surviving signers of Declaration of Independence. "Several hundred" pieces struck in Silver and White Metal (pewter); presented to guests and officials. Attractive and RARE.

Rev. Edifice; above, around, Crystal Palace; below, around, Opened MDCCCLIV. Below l. of edifice, microscopic Pinches; below r. of edifice, microscopic London. More Comments from the So-Called Dollar website: Manufactured by Pinches of London, these medals are actually British and should not have been included even in the 1963 edition of this reference. Originally opened as part of The Great Exhibition of 1851, the Crystal Palace was moved after the close of the Exhibition from its original location in Hyde Park; reopened on Sydenham Hill in London by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert on June 10, 1854. Original building destroyed by fire on Nov. 30, 1936; site of current Crystal Palace Park. Attractive.

This medal was struck to commemorate one of the greatest bare knuckles heavyweight championship fights ever recorded. John C. Heenan from America—The Benicia Boy—won the first clear claim to the American title and then journeyed to England to fight their champion Tom Sayers, a bricklayer by trade. The grand fight took place on April 17, 1860 and lasted over two hours, a 42 round "draw" after Sayers arm became injured. Medals were struck for both Heenan and Sayers, as champions of their respective countries. This specimen retains mirror surfaces and the strike is bold throughout. These were struck in New York upon Heenan's return after the great battle had come to a draw. Sayer retired from boxing after this endurance match. Obv. Raised male bust facing l.; above Thomas S.

Laurel Design with tied bow at bottom, beaded border surrounds. Attractive, Scarce and Popular both as a Theater Collectible and Medal Collectible. Rare in Un-Holed Condition as this happy example is. The Following Appeared in the New York Daily Tribune, Weds. November 17, 1875, Page 4: Park Theatre. The 100th Performance of "The Mighty Dollar" will be reached at the Park Theatre December 17 (13th?), and the Occasion is to be Commemorated. Every Lady who attends on that Evening, will receive a silver medal of the size and weight of a trade dollar, while each member of the dramatic company will receive a medal of bronze". The peaceful image of patience, much exemplified in various ways by the statue of "The Mighty Dollar", might not be an inappropriate inscription for these Souvenirs. Mrs. Florence intends that the 100th Night of Mr Wooli's Play shall be Uncommonly Cheerful and Brilliant. The Play Plot: Mighty Dollar, The (1875), a play by Benjamin E. Woolf. [ Park Theatre, 104 perf.] The most famous salon in Washington is appropriately named Grabmoor, for it is here that the leading wheelers and dealers come to contrive arrangements that will allow them to pile up the mighty dollar. They stop their greedy machinations for a few moments to help a newly married lady, Clara Dart (Maude Granger), when she is bothered by a former suitor, but the money grubbing continues the moment she leaves. Prominent among the figures at Grabmoor are the not particularly ethical Congressman, the Hon. Bardwell Slote (W. J. Florence), and Mrs. General Gilflory (Mrs. Florence). Slote is given to qualifying his statements with “not by a large majority,” and dropping such abbreviations as B. O. T. and P. D. Q., which he later explains mean “bully old time” and “pretty darn quick.” The upstart Mrs. Gilflory has her own pet phrases to show off her learning, most notably “from Alpha to Omaha.” Assailed by critics as vulgar and formless, the comedy nevertheless gave the Florences their most enduring success and added the colorful character of Slote to the body of dramatic literature.

History: A Small paint and varnish company in the 1820's and 1830's, the company relocated to New York in 1870. Valentine & Company began to specialize in vehicle finishing varnishes that were competitive with widely prized English varnishes. Lawson Valentine's grandson, L. Valentine Pulsifer, joined the company in 1903 after receiving his degree in chemistry from Harvard University. Three years later Pulsifer produced Valspar, the first clear varnish. The company later was renamed Valspar, which is one of the largest North American manufacturers of paint and varnish.
