MARTIN VAN BUREN & DEMOCRACY medal promoting Van Buren for president in 1840. White metal, 38 mm., in almost uncirculated condition. There is a very light and minor surface scratch in the shape of a diamond around Van Buren's head and some minor discoloration on the reverse, but this retains most of its original luster. Dewitt #MVB1840-1. There is an optimistic Inauguration date of "MARCH 4 1841" on the reverse - but it would be William Henry Harrison, not Van Buren, who would take the oath of office on that date. $300-$400
