George Washington Silver Oval 1792 Indian Peace Medals & New Findings!

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!

Ouroboros1

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!

Earliest US Mint Medal: Reveals Masonic Pig-Pen Ciphers on 1792 GW Indian Peace Medal!

1792 George Washington Indian Peace Medal Located at the Woolaroc Museum

Since having been published with the American Numismatic Society’s prestigious “Colonial Journal”. Many new advancements in the study have been made and these finds taking on a whole new meaning with the study of these exceptionally rare medals.

But the hallmarked “JW” Joseph Wright, two rediscovered medals in the last few years are the King’s of US Government early medals and the earliest known surviving hand engraved US Mint relics. Joseph Wright, the first appointed US Mint engraver, also an accomplished painter and sculptor did into the very first year of his appointment at the Mint from a yellow fever epidemic.

Over the last two years, in-depth research on Masonic Guild engraving has come to a fruition in the identification of the most basic esoteric engraving methods of incorporating written messages in the engraving art. THIS MAJOR FIND ON THE ONLY TWO JOSEPH WRIGHT MEDALS SEEN, AUTHENTICATES THEM AS REAL PEACE MEDALS!

Better known a Masonic Pig Pen Ciphers and Tic-Tac-Toe Ciphers where records of this system have been found which go back to at least the 18th century. Variations of this cipher were used by both the Rosicrucian brotherhood and the Freemasons, though the latter used it so often that the system is frequently called the Freemason’s cipher.

Both the Joseph Wright medals contain and intricate cipher system that is cut into the cross hatching of George Washington’s arms and legs. The reverse side of the medals have another variation of ciphers in the arrow feathers and only on the Wright, NY medal. Do we see the cipher grid on the birds tail feathers. Original a few year back, when the study was conducted. The research on reverse sides had me believing the ciphers were a variation form of the ancient Celt writing called ogham. Now I personally believe that these ciphers may have in fact originated from the evolution of the ogham writing system with who ever created these ciphers.

Below you can clearly see the tic-tac-toe grid and marking of some sort in the checkers: Zoom in and see that the grids were manipulated with symbols. The pigpen cipher uses graphical symbols assigned according to a key.

These methods of secret writing are “WAY MORE COMMON” than you know. The Philadelphia engravers have done many ciphers as such on other art they created. Recently, dozens of historical Winchester Firearms have been found having these same identical style of cipher grids. When you add it all up, we are dealing with secret messages that regardless of what they could or would say. Finding these ciphers make any relic of such or on weapons and even if its found in a painting. The cipher makes the relic or art a “DOCUMENT” and this basic identification of Ciphers found on many Masonic Guild Art has been over looked by academic scholars and auction houses since the founding of this nation. Other than the knowledge and art being passed down to apprentices and Winchester Firearms engravers, continued to place ciphers on their highly engraved rifles into the early part of the 20th century by the Ulrich engraving family.

Recently, important Pennsylvania long guns have been seen with these same basic style of cipher grids. What is absolutely known as fact is that the two Joseph Wright medals have these simple Freemasons Cipher grids that set them apart from even the most elaborate George Washington Indian Peace medal called the Red Jacket medal. The two Joseph Wright medals are the most important, historically significant US Government medals in US History!

 

 

FINDING US GREAT SEAL LOST WORM SYMBOLISM EVIDENCE WITH THE PHOENIX! EVIDENCE NEVER SEEN BEFORE.

St. Clair-Wright Makers Marks

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!

http://gnosticwarrior.com/the-gnostic-seal.html

(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.

2nd-great-seal-comb

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!

Rare Relic Symbolism Associated to George Washington & Sovereignty

GEORGE WASHINGTONS PERSONAL GREAT SEAL OF THE UNITED STATES

dorsett seal

Taken from Wiki on Great Seal 

In 1894 Palemon Howard Dorsett, a lifelong Department of Agriculture employee, turned up at the Department of State with a metal die engraved with the Great Seal, claiming it had originally been given to his family by a nephew of George Washington. It was examined by Gaillard Hunt, the author of a pamphlet on the Great Seal, who agreed that it appeared to be contemporaneous with the original 1782 seal, but he took no further interest in the matter.[37]

Decades later, in 1936, Dorsett wrote again regarding his die, and this time it was investigated more thoroughly. It is a very similar design to the first Great Seal die and obviously copied from it, even including a border of acanthus leaves. The eagle was different though, being more spirited with its wings more widely spread. More significantly, the arrows and the olive branch are switched, indicating an intentional “difference” to distinguish it from the actual Great Seal. It is the same size as the first die, and is made of bronze. There was no indication that it could actually be used in a seal press, and a search of government documents showed no use of the seal anywhere.[38]

The investigation also turned up some facts that supported Dorsett’s story: documents relating to the sale of Washington’s estate list “plates arms U.S.” being sold to Thomas Hammond (a son-in-law of Charles Washington and therefore a nephew by marriage to George Washington), and also the Hammond and Dorsett families both had roots in West Virginia just a few miles apart. Afterwards Dorsett lent his seal to Mount Vernon, and his heirs made it a donation. It was eventually put on display in a museum there.

Gary:

Never had anyone done a deep study on any of the US Great Seals, not even the authors of the Eagle & the Shield. Not Long after being published in the ANS Colonial Journal, I had made this discovery in direct association to George Washington’s personal Great Seal & Identical letters “CI” found on one of the rarest United States Mint issued George Washington Oval Silver 1792 Indian Peace Medal. The two earliest known of these medals I wrote about in the journal were identified the earliest ones of the US Mint. Which makes them the earliest hand engraved US Mint relics known in its founding history.

The same artist was the US Great Seal Maker Robert Scot, who made a number of the Indian Peace medals, where a group of artist were part of the guild. Scot in a conversation with an archivest who provided me with information on Scot in Scotland, unknown to the US Government historians or historical seal researchers. Said that Scot would have been the appointed from Europe in the United States as the President of the Artist Guild.

gw-ci

Found on the only known 1792 Silver Oval, George Washington Indian Peace Medal from my recent research last year on these medals for the Journal. Low and behold I found the same markings that I thought it was the abbriviation for the Military Officers Society he founded “Society of Cincinnati”, which it is not! The Seal could have been oresented to him in 1789 and the medals were made just after during the first Presidents term. So the “CI” would represent the 1st Colonial Inauguration of Washington. The “CI” is not found on the other known US Great Seals. Some US coins have the “CI” found on the ribbon end of diamond tag(Ribbon on the Great Seal Bird”.

No Peace medal authorities ever make any advancements on the study with these medals. Especially when your dealing with a select few that are worth more the a $1m US dollars at any of the top coin auctions.

Now in the case with this find, its exceptionally rare and clearly marked “CI” on both relics. Scot was proven by my research to be the US Great Seal maker, with a group of artist together. This peace medal shows the only markings and they are both associated to Washington’s history directly. This example image below is a GW Indian Peace Medal
