Description Alan V. Weinberg comments: The very rare City of Charleston (So Carolina) Mexican War medal which, I believe, only exists in silver. Far, far rarer than the NY Mexican War medal which exists in brz, silver and gold. I've seen perhaps a total of 3-4 of these silver City of Charleston medals in 5 decades and this is the finest. Ex Garrett/JHU 1981 where I was Ford's immediate underbidder, I ended up acquiring it in Ford decades later for approx the same price as Ford paid!.
