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!
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!
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!
RESTORATION PROJECT: Requesting donations to have a historical 3 pounder cannon restored at Lake Champlain Maritime Museum.
The Historical cannon named the “Swamp Angles” was a complicated provenance history to solve. Given to the City of Milford by the Great Showman PT Barnum who collected historical cannons that were used as part of his shows.
The name “Swamp Angles” referred to the history of the cannon being used with Perry on the great lakes in the 1812 War. One of the bloodiest US Naval engagements took place on the lakes where many free African American and Kentucky Riflemen patriots who lost their lives. Were committed to the Lake after the Battle of Lake Erie.
Historians who I have spoke to from Detroit haved documented the name origins “Swamp Angle’s” did refer to the bodies committed to the Lake, but some of the brave sould bodies did wash up on the shores around the lakes tributeries. The 2nd documented history that was well documented by the Kentucky National Guard Historian was that there was the famous battle “River Raisin”. Where Perry’s ships were documented not having any 3lbs cannon. Except for where the bloody bloody massacre took place on the River Raisin. The Swamp Angle’s is a relic from this history that is commemorating the men who gave thier lives on the great lakes in the fight from freedom in the War of 1812.
Today, the cannon is in a sad state, placed in the ground 30 plus years ago. Reason that the cannon would not be taken by collectors. Today it sits accross the street from the Milford Green on a street corner thats to close to traffic.
What you see is not a pretty sight, first thoughts is it was painted green and a cone thrown on top for some Holloween joke. But, no! This is to prevent cars from running the relic over. Now Im putting up the insurance money to dig it out. Request being made to the City Public Works to pull it out and send it to Vermont for restoration.
WHATS EVEN MORE SPECIAL: The famous Civil War Bombardment of Charleston, SC. was boombed by the famous cannon called the Swamp Angle by Gilmore(Scottish Iron Industry Connection in USA”. The famous all black American regiment who fought in Charelston, SC. was the 54th named the “Swamp Angles” and todays 54th does not even know where the name originated!
Special notes here, PT. Barnum was famous for massive propaganda in the Civil War against the South with the burning of Charleston with cannon incendiary rounds. Confederate spys took revenge with a plot to burn NYC with the same Greek Fire that burned Charelston to the ground. They chose Pt. Barnums Museum and ironic because there was a small cannon like this one he gave to Milford that survived the blaze.
The truth is that this cannon teaches cannon history than another cannon in US history from the iron industry on the great lakes with the foundery that made the Civil War gun and families directly associated to being on Perry’s ships and who served at the River Raisin. Linking 1812 War history with Civil War Cannon manufacturing as well! Not to say that the cannon design indicates it was made during the American Revolution. Note that few authentic American cannons that are iron, have even been identifed in US History! The added history states this cannon was maybe at one used at the Battle of Stony Point, NY.
Any one wishing to help out! Please contact me on the blog. The cannon will cost $5k for conservation and I have a large historical marble stone it will be mounted too!
