||Alan V. Weinberg comments: Illustrated in Q David Bowers' California Gold Rush History opus. Two are known, the other without a hanger. Engraving details are slightly different, as is expected with hand-engraving. The medal's design is illustrated in a 19th century newspaper (full page) documenting the disaster at sea. The engraver's style is recognizable in other life saving medals to follow and in an exquisite 1854 gold lifesaving medal in the NY Historical Society which I've personally examined.
