Below is the Little Joseph Wright medal, side by side with the famous Seneca Chief Farmers Brother medal.
For the first time I decided to show medals collectors an overlooked 1789 GW IPM that the experts dismissed as fakes! Also you will see Burton Boardman 9th Generation silversmith show you the construction method of the 1789 and the 1792 Joseph Wright GW IPM medals. The 1789s have a unique Joseph Richardson Letter initials punched IR forming the Great seal birds mouth.
Below was the famous 1792 Hallmarked “JW” peace medal that turned the heads of the top numismatic scholars with its debut being featured in the Colonial Newsletter . The most prestigious research journal in early numismatics in the world. Where you can read the paper free online that also features its sister medal that is located at the Woolaroc Museum in Oklahoma. Volume 55, Number 3 – December 2015 -Serial Number 159 & published by The American Numismatic Society in NYC.
After a few years on the study of these rare medals, Dr. Ron Miller and myself were very fortunate that together, we were able to co-author this scientific paper. Our goal was to prove that this medal was in fact an authentic medal, engraved by Joseph Wright. Wright was the very first official engraver of the US Mint by 1791-1793 and had died, along with his wife from a horrific yellow fever epidemic in Philadelphia.
Only the medals made by Joseph Richardson and a few of his sons are the only other known peace medals to have punched letter initial marks and this medal featured in this story has these punched markers marks that are also called a “Touch Mark”.
After the medal was featured in the Journal, all the top experts in the filed of medals study, would not accept this medal and its sister at the Woolaroc Museum as authentic. The most well known experts laughed at basic history of the vast Masonic Guild esoteric symbolism right before their eyes! Even worse, when the owner of the medal tried to sell it years later. Not one of the top auction houses would even bother supporting the sale and refused to consign the piece for sale.
Dealing with experts on these medals, I have learned that they do not know how to set a standard of grading or even know how to identify any authentic silver oval Indian peace medal. Except the very few that have a full provenance with their histories preserved is their only basis of knowing what an authentic medal looks like. This is a similar issue in the identification world of historical period 13 stars & stripes flags that I had dealt with in the past and proved the very first two period star & stripes authentic in US history. Dealing with some of the top people in the historical gun engraving world. My partner David Fegley and I were confronted by even worse ignorant experts who devalue priceless engraved guns. Same story, where people who have zero knowledge in the origins of engraving with the founding of the United States and the guild artists. Where I was the first to identify that the top gun engravers were all connected to the American Banknote Company. The company founded by the Scottish born US great seal engraver Robert Scot, who replaced Joseph Wright at the US Mint after Wright died. So we have a very powerful connection with Robert Scot being a secret Jacobite and the President of the American art guild. Scot was responsible for establishing the very first engraving school and Wright was under Scot’s guild controlled umbrella also!
Again, I want to tell that David Fegley did an outstanding job with his microscope that bends light to bring out far superior images, that allow me to show you what I miss with my eyes!
THE OUROBOROS SNAKE THAT EATS ITS TAIL
Here is an image that Dave took with his high tech scope that bends light so you can see the medal that is worn around the of the Indian Chief that Washington is sharing the wacky tobacky pipe with. Here we find a major historical find that shows the snake that eats its tail. The Scottish Jacobite meaning with my last posted history on the symbolism representing the Stuart symbolism of Charles II followers using the symbolism to represent the cycle of the return of the King and the Stuart Kings royal “LINK” to God! This is also the origins of George Washingtons, circular 13 star pattern with his Ross flag design and also the origins of the US 13 Chain link coin symbolism. Prior to the American symbolism its found on the rarest of historical Jacobite loyalist buttons with the snake that eats its tail, 13 star and stripes being Jacobite in origins with chain links. Pictured below.
The medal above shows the perfect snake eating its tail!
This is such an exciting find that I found this symbolism on several of the authentic known 1792 peace medals that are authentic peace medals, thank to Mr. Dave Fegley of Rifles & Relics LLC based out of Pennsylvania. Fakers cant fake this or make this stuff up, its a slam dunk on giving authenticity to the medal featured in this story. By the way, this author never gave up on this story’s featured medal that after it would not sell, that’s to the experts hurting the medals reputation. This author made it a point to purchase the medal and I now own the relic with coin and relic scholar Kory Greenberg of California.
THE NEW TREE SYMBOLISM FINDS
We see two different trees, the bent over pine tree that is Jacobite symbolism. The famous Pine Tree shilling coins from the Massachusetts bay Colony. Upon the restoration of Charles II, Gov. Winthrop had to explain that the pine tree was symbolic to the Royal Oak tree that Charles was hiding in when he escaped England. Hiding in the famous oak tree while the Round Heads where searching for him before his escape to France.
The pine tree is symbolic to Charles II with the Oak tree via the American colonies, just like the snake eating its tail on the Indians medal around his neck. The tree trunk was a mind boggler for a great while and the large trunk design can not be a tall standing American Pine tree. Except when you study the 1780 Indian Peace medal by Robert Scot, call the “Happy While United Indian Peace Medal” from Virginia. We now can close the story, because the tree trunk and the Scot medals tree are what is called the Scot’s Pine tree. Loyalists to the deposed Stuarts would plant them in England on their properties to be used symbolically as a place of refuge for Jacobites and the trees were called the “Bonnie Trees” in representation of the the Bonnie Prince Charles Edward Stuart. All of this symbolism is Jacobite symbolism that is showing Loyalty to the deposed House of Stuart’s. Adding to the fact that when to look at the back side of the medal, we do not have an Eagle, we have the Phoenix that is the birth song and a symbol to the Jacobites in the day with the rebirth of the house of Stuart in America with the Bonnie Prince who was the true King. The clouds in the sky is the STAR GATE TO HEAVEN! The 13 arrows represent the King and his 12 knight a Garter, being symbolic of Jesus and the 12 apostles.
The Phoenix holding the “Laurel Branch” symbolizing Jacobite victory to come because it is not wrapped yet into a laurel crown that is the symbol of victory. Which is documented in the 1745 war art of the Bonnie wearing the Laurel in Scotland with his victory in Edinburgh.
LATEST FORENSIC METAL TESTING
May I not forget the latest research on the medal. The medal has successfully been sent to a top metallurgical scientist, who has proven that the medal and the metal content is specific to the date with comparison tests of US Mint silver to that date. proving once and for all that the only person who would have the exact metal from the US Mint could only be Joseph Wright with out a shadow of a doubt. Forensic testing does not lie and can not be brushed aside by an auction house. Even better, insurance companies have been calling me with my advanced research in the effort to advance insurance values of relics now! Big money Game…..Now!
How Do You Price & Value the Medal of such
Keep this in mind if your a guild relic appraiser for legal insurance purposes! Knowing now that the artist was Joseph Wright and that this medal is the earliest United States Mint hand engraved medal. Also knowing that Wright was the 1st appointed US mint official engraver and Joseph Richardson was only a subcontractor. You have to weigh out the values that this historical medal is more valuable than the Robert Scot 1794 US silver dollar that sold for $10 Million USD a few years ago. Why would this be true, because its the holy grail relic identifiable to the United States Mint to date! The most recent Peace medal had just sold for $600k USD recently that was a Richardson. Condition and the engraving quality are irrelevant in comparison to the quality of Joseph Richardsons medals. Today’s guild appraiser have to go by an insurance value of more than the Scot coin because of the historical significance and rarity of this medal being the earliest known surviving US Mint hand engraved relic in American history today!
The top experts in the coin world have now become irrelevant with insuring priceless relics. They only meet a standard of grading and rarity! They do not catalog the true history of what is laid out in their faces and todays big museum insurance companies are opening their eyes to this today to the vast repurposing of the true art that jacobites created with the art.
The new advancements with advancing this knowledge and billions of dollar to come with millions of relics associated to the guild has been an ongoing project with my associated partners Kory Greenberg, David Fegley and Chris Soter! My associates and I are launching our LLC services with our businesses named Relics International and Rifles & Relics LLC. We are open for business legally!
The newly found and understood, reference of the “Hearne Diary, Vol, 62 to 7a” from 1717 is located in the archives at Oxford University. The factual symbolism meaning now can translate the origins of the American Revolutionary War Rattlesnake symbolism, including all the United States American 13 Star’s & Stripes “Star Pattern” origins! The information presented is a big addition to my on going research with the “Webb Horn” Papers I wrote on the American flag origins.
Hearne documented that the Stuart Loyalist were using symbolism that depicted “The Self Eating Snake” that eats its tail. Representing “The Old Serpent of Spirit of Resistance” which is a the circular course of events to restore the Rightful King to the thrown. Except this course of symbolism evolved in America representing all the Stuart Kings from Charles I to Prince Charles Edward Stuart. Where from these devices of historical rattlesnake symbolism, we find the 13 Stars & Stripes was in use, years before the American Revolution Flag Act of 1777 with Contineintial Congress.
For the first time in US History, George Washington’s most famous flag with the mysteries associated to Betsy Ross and the 13 star circular pattern design. Now can be fully explained in great detail! The Washington flag does have direct history associated to Clan Ross, more directly to the Earl of Clan Ross (King Charles I), Stuarts had held the Earl of Ross titles since 1481 with James Stuart, son of King James III until the time of Charles I who was the last person to hold the title. The interesting connection is the fact that the husband of Betsey Ross, John Ross was the heir to the House of Balbair. Who’s direct bloodlines held the titles of the Earl of Ross, prior to the Stuarts taking the Earldom title of Ross. The Washington 13 stars & Stripes flag design with the circular star pattern that is associated to Betsey Ross symbolizes, King Charles I & II restoration symbolism of the snake devouring its own tail. Symbolism of a sovereign link, directly to God! The 13 star symbolism represents the Stuart King & his Order of the knights Garter. Based on Jesus and the 12 Apostles , even though members of the order have exceeded the 13 number or were short of 12 persons has been recorded.
The original portrait of Washington at Princeton by Charles Wilson Peal. Displaying thirteen stars being “6” pointed Stars, that represents royalty. The myth with Betsey changing the star design to a “5” pointed star with a textile fold and one snip of the scissors is fantasy. The five pointed Star symbolism with Jacobite history, represents the last jacobite Stuart Prince, Charles Edward Stuart and the White Rose history of the White Cockade with the 1745 Uprising. The Attempt of the Bonnie Prince Charles Edward. trying to retake the thrown. One of the earliest American colony five pointed stars, used by a Colonial Governor with Connecticut’s Colony, was the seal of Governor Robert Treat. Governor Treat used a new seal with a heart and two arrows that pierced through a heart with a five pointed star. The symbolism is found on mourning lockets that are documented with Charles I. Treat had swore a loyalty to Charles II, all feared reprisal from Charles II who took the thrown back, after being exiled from England and his father was captured and condemed to death.
Regardless, the earliest preserved record of the circular snake with Charles was found with the English loyalist with Thomas Hearne thats known to date.
The “Hearne Papers” source information also allows all the lost American Revolutionary War symbolism of the Continental Currency and coins with chain link history to be exposed. Such as the first US silver dollar Chain Link coins and the fugio coppers with the chain links of the 13 states, giving the motto “We Are One”! Even George Washington’s Chain Link Inaugrual button designs are based on this symbolism of the self eating snake symbolism with the Civil Wars and Restoration history with Charles I & II.
This new information is an addition to what I already wrote on proving that the United States Symbolism, represented the deposed Kings of England, Ireland & Scotland. Specificially the Stuarts and their Order of the knight Garter symbolism that I have ready presented on this site & Electric Scotland. Relating to my on going personal research and findings with the United States Sovereign identity origins completes the factual lost symbolism of the USA. There is nothing vexillologists, button collectors. US government or British academics can do or say to defuse the Hearne papers that allow’s for the first documented time in American history! The “Truth” to the origins of the United States 13 Stars & Stripes originated from Charles I loyalist with the clubs and nonjuror’s who refused to break their oaths to the Stuarts.
Jennie Brownscombe, an early 20th century painter, imagined the meeting of George Washington (seated) and Betsy Ross in her painting Examining the Flag. (Courtesy of Claude and Inez Harkins) This famous painting pictured above and the flag below, belonged to my very close flag researching associate, the Late Claude Harkin’s! The oval star pattern below represents an All Seeing Eye! Still it represents the same meaning associated to the snake that eats its tail in association to the Stuart Restoration symbolism.
The Buttons below are cast by John Powell, who is the founder of ” Military Artifacts of Spanish Florida” an Internet Museum. Mr. Powell has allowed these images to be presented on this paper for education. Another one was metal detected in the 1970’s and found in England. Other Jacobite variations have the rattlesnake and were made in France for loyalist Jacobites in France and America years before the American Revolution.
Both buttons were cast from originals, showing two Ouroboros snakes eating their tails. One was found on a Spanish Fort. One has to really look at these and grasp if these are snakes with symbols on the tails and symbols that represent a rattlesnake. Knowing these buttons originate from France. France was the stronghold for Jacobites exiled, along with the “deposed Stuarts”!
The English scholar Thomas Hearne, A nonjuror himself, who refused to take the oaths of allegiance to King George I and early in 1716 he was deprived of his librarianship, and “he was, in fact, locked out of the library”. However, he continued to reside in Oxford, and occupied himself in editing the English chroniclers. Hearne refused several important academic positions, including the librarianship of the Bodleian and the Camden professorship of ancient history, rather than take the oaths to the Hanoverian King and he stayed loyal to the Stuart Kings.The nonjuring schism was a split in the Anglican churches of England, Scotland, and Ireland in the aftermath of the Glorious Revolution of 1688, over whether William III (REMEMBER THE TERM DUTCH MASTERS) and Mary II could legally be recognised as sovereigns.
Thanks to Oxford University for preserving Hearne’s papers on the circular snake eating its tail, linking King Charles the Martyr with a direct “Link” to God symbolism. The entirety of filling in all the blanks with the striped flags and documents of Sir Charles Fawcett. The striped flag of the East Indian Company, and its connection with the American “Stars and Stripes” has to be acknowledged that its the flag of the Sovereign being the Stuarts. The Grand Union flag that George Washington at the out break of the American Revolution was a flag of Charles II while he was the King. The British Union is a Stuart flag and the stripes no matter how you see it symbolizes the true sovereigns being the Stuarts. Having been in use more than 100 years before the American Revolution.
Grand Union Flag is Pictured Above
Cheers to the Gnostic Warrior, Moe Bedard for posting “The Great Seal of the Masonic States of Abraxas. Paste Link below to see the site and images of Moe’s post!
(FROM MOES SITE) “Abraxas is a Gnostic holy name of God. The national bird on the Seal of the United States is in reality, a Phoenix. The phoenix and worm (serpent) regenerates itself from the fire. A certain time elapsed, a worm is produced from the ashes [of the former-phoenix], and this worm being transformed, becomes again a phoenix. (Artemidorus)” – Moe the Gnostic Warrior.”
WHAT IT MEANS?
Scholars have always said the US Great Seal was always a Phoenix. From the early designs that did take the shape of a Phoenix. Main stream historians refused to acknowledge that several great seals were made from 1781-1791. Masonic scholars Manley Hall, who Moe quotes that even Hall said the American US coat of arms eagle was indeed a Phoenix.
My research proved that the seals were a phoenix on many written occasions with evidence from the prosed drawings and the fact that the Phoenix represented the birth of the exiled Scottish Prince Charles Edward Stuart. Where the US Great Seals truest meaning is or represents “The Rebirth of the House of Stuart in America”! All the US great seal art and designs were installed in the United States goverment by the secret Jacobite Robert Scot. The US Mints early chief engraver who was in reality was secretly the head of the United States Masonic Art Guild!
The flag above was General Arthus St. Clairs flag, made by the first engraver of the US Mint, Joesph Wright who’s makers marks JJW are found on the brown section of the birds neck. The birds white wing edge of the bone structure is the “HIDDEN WORM/SERPENT” that is clearly seen. The few images of survivng US Great Seals only show the ribbons in the birds mouth, like this ribbon. Showing the worm again!
On the other hand, so no academics can ever say! Quote “You CANT PROVE THIS FLAG REPRESENTS ANYTHING OF ANY SUCH NATURE”. Then I present to you George Washingtons famous US Great Seal, called the Dorsett Seal that is located at Mount Vernon! Showing the same identical worm/serpent on the wing like the flag. Made by the US Mint Guild Artist. Remember that Joseph Wright and Robert Scot were engravers and painters as well!
THE WORM EVIDENCE HERE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN US HISTORY WITH THE PICTURE EVIDENCE. PROVE ONCE AND FOR ALL THE US GREAT SEALS ALL REPRESENT A PHOENIX. BASED ON THE WORM EVIDENCE ON HUNDREDS OF RELICS OF TH US GREAT SEAL FROM THE 18th & 19th CENTURY!
THANKS TO MOE FOR PUTTING THIS INFORMATION OUT! IT ALLOWED ME TO PRESENT THESE EXCEPTIONAL PICTURES PROVING IT 100% FATUAL! Mason will have to wake up and look up the facts on this! MASONIC YES, But from who chartered Freemasonry? The Stuarts symbolism, a way to control the Masses while exiled!
Note:The 2nd Great Seal I handled was a bird of Pray with wings that people would think was not quality engraving, except its a cipher art, like behing the birds neck with the feathers painted that are a Scottish ancient cipher design! Art i have seen many times with Scottish Royal Archers relic history.
This image is the 1783, half size, 2ng great seal of the United States from my old Musuem collection I was requested to study, the Upper feather eye brow shows the rooster comb that goes with the Light of Abraxas. But also a Scot/Cockburn/Sinclair symbol with what I believe links to the Norman Knight De Lucy of the Lights!

Notes: The Sword Baskets 3-2-3-2-3 has the odd stars like a diamond, Diamonds are documented on this blog with the Stuart Heart Buttons with Arrows with mary Queen of Scot’s and Charles I on the scaffold “REMEBER ME” and the Royal Jewery Signets!
Notes:All of these families mentioned in the last two documents are all married with the Stuarts, Scot/Buccleuch, Sinclair and St. Clairs and many other important families. Clan Gordon comes into play with these families. Would be a blessing from my research side if the Gordon silversmith/engravers were associated in this art being made. Much to a few of the Jacobite engravers known, many medals and pieces are not known or documented to which did the work! Where these medals are as rare and even more rare than the George Washington Indian Peace medals I have studied and corrected the identification of authentic early US Mint Relics from 1791-4.
Pictured About is a Scottish Dress Shield called a Targe, Made for the exiled Scottish Prince and presented to him with his invasion of England during the Jacobite 1745 Up-Rising!
The Cowpens flag, or 3rd Maryland flag, is an early version of the United States flag that meets the congressional requirements of the Flag Resolution of 1777. Like the Betsy Ross flag, the white stars are arranged in a circle on a blue field; but the circle consists of just 12 stars, with the 13th star in the center and its design meaning has always been unknown to vexillologist.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS DOCUMENT IS ONLY PART OF THE US FLAG HISTORY THAT GARY GIANOTTI REWROTE! THE WEBB HORN FLAG DOCUMENT IS FOUND ON THIS BLOG AND ON ELECTRIC SCOTLAND!
Flag controversy: US FLAG ORIGINS AND FRANCIS HOPKINSON….3-2-3-2-3
Above is a flag that I spent time handleing, one fo the earliest cotton flags that a textile historian said it was made after in the early 1800’s, do I agree? No! But the real Hopkinson mystery of the 3-2-3-2-3 star pattern US Stars & Stripes flags can be told because of Scottish guild sword smith artists. Who, I remove my hat to and take to one knee to the ground too for leaving us the evidence. The evidence you see on a Scottish Basket Hilt sword documented from the Scottish 1745 Uprising or even decades before to the earlier Uprising.
What does it mean and why would Hopkinson choose this symbol at the time of the American Revolution. Either way you turn this image, like the Hopkinson flag design. Your get the star pattern 3-2-3-2-3 design. This sword is documented and there are others documented to the original sword maker existing from Scotland.
the basic symbolism is identical to the origins of the Banabas Webb Horn document I wrote in the past that represents the Scottish Stuart Sovereigns and the past Sovereigns and their ORDER OF KNIGHTS! The English Order of the Garter, which is the King as the Sovereign knight and his 12 appointed Knights. Documented in the British government websotes this factual history that the number 13 with the Order of the Garter. Represented the King as Jesus and the 12 knights, representing the 12 apostles who followed the Savior Jesus Christ. So the English Sovereign history established the order of Garter and After that the Scottish Sovereigns also had the Order of the Thistle. The Scottish Version of the Order of the Garter. We are seeing the history of the Order of the Thistle symbolism, “13 stars” representing the same thing with the symbolism of the Garter.
So these two orders are created as far back to the 1348 fisrt with the garter and then folowed by the Thistles established by King James VII in 1687. Now we have Hopkinson design origins and what whas he trying to tell us about the design? The 3-2-3-2-3 design represents where the origins of the United States Sovereignty originates, WITH THE ORIGINAL SOVEREIGNS! EXCEPT, WE HAVE THE STUART KINGS DAUGHTER With the House of Hanover who exiles Her Father and the Hanoverians adopted or took over the oders of the Garter and Thistle. When the Exiled Schootish Prince, though exiled still carried on those order with his Sovereign rights, while exiled!
So the true Sovereign Kings are exiled, the Hanovarians take over and appoint their own orders of the Ruling Soveriengs with their Appointed King. Hopkinson was identifying where the US Soverign flag originates, among the exiled ruling class of the House of Stuart and the House of Hanover, the history of the Stuart Kings daughter exiling him and taking power of the thrown with her Dutch boy Prince from Holland!
No matter what, the same symbolism is to the Garter and their 8 pointed blazing star they wear on their jackets is the same symbolism to the Webb Horn 8 pointed star and stripes flag. The Order followed the belief of the symbolism to the Dog Star. This is were Freemasonry adopted this history symbolism because the Stuarts Kings Charted FREEMASONRY!
Recap on the origins: Hopkinson created the said first US flag design called the 3-2-3-2-3 star pattern and 13 red and whites stripes. The design is a basic origins of where US Sovereignty originates, to the order of the Garter. the King and his 12 knights for 13 stars and stripes! The Webb Horn is an 8 pointed star of the order of the Garter symbolism history with seven stripes to represent Jame VII who was exiled, who founded Thistle and was the Sovereign of the Garter too! The 8 pointed star symbolism of the Garter and Thistel s the same origins history with the belief that we humans originate from the star Sirius or the Dog Star that is ancient belief passed down from the ancient people before Christ from the ancient world. SO DO NOT BLAME MASONS FOR ALL THE BS CONSPIRACY THE ONLY ONE EXISTING WAS BETWEEN TWO RULING HOUSES OF SOVEREIGNS WHOS HISTORY ASSOCIATE THE FOUNDING OF THE UNITED STATES!
