William Henry Harrison Lg Oval Peace Treaty Medal On Red Presentation Collar:
Your offerding on a William Henry Harrison Peace Treaty Medallion on a Presentation Red CollarOutside measurements around the collar is about 42" from one end to the other end.
The angle on the end of the collar is 5" and at the top of the neck width is 1 3/4"
There is a 7/8" x 1 1/2" tag on the end. Some type of silver tag with a pipe and axe.
All the design is coarse metal type of material. And missing all around the top part neck area.
The collar really shows its age. If you need more pictures please ask.The Bronze Medal - some type of silver over bronze is my guess. It is 3 5/8" long and 2 13/16" wide. There is one just like it on display at The Baxter Springs , Kansas, Museum. I did call them and they said that more then one was made because they would give these to the Indians. In 1803 Harrison also became a special commissioner to treat with the Indians. Age unknown.There is so much History on the internet.
This is a nice piece and needs to be in a museum or in your collection.
My parents purchased it years ago from a huge family estate collection and was told it has been in the family and handed down through the years. This is what makes us thing it is old. Please use your own judgement.
The Red Velvet Quilted Collar shows its age. Velvet worn off in many areas. And seam is loose around the top neck area. See Pictures. Oval Medal has worn areas where the silver has worn. I am sure the Medal was added later to the collar.
