Jeff,

That is the silver version of the commemorative medal for the 3rd anniversary of the Revolution. There is also a bronze version. Original ones of either type are rare as hen's teeth while copies/replicas/restrikes/call-them-what-you-want are more than plentiful. As far as I know, there are no set criteria for assessment...

If you intend to get it, get it as a copy, that way you'll be on the safe side.

Marc

It showed up those NYC auctions I think...

I think I saw this medal among the images of the NYC auction lots of a month or two ago. The auction pieces were in much rougher condition.

Yes, and they sold for over $1000 each if I remember correctly.
