William H. Key engraved two different dies with the Liberty
Bell design. Careful inspection notes numerous differences,
most noticeably the digit 6 in the date. This variety has a
rounded 6 on both the obverse and reverse, the other die
variety SH 2-3 has a pointed 6. These dies are not found paired
with any other dies and are almost always holed. The chance
purchase of this medal in bronze turned into a life changing
event for one of the authors.
