Specimen Striking according to PCGS, certainly one of the finest. The fourth in a series of eight medals with a large bust of Washington, engraved and issued by George Hampden Lovett to commemorate the Revolutionary Battles of 1776. Fighting took place in what is now Manhattan, New York. The Continentals, who were in an orderly retreat, were infuriated by the British sounding the “gone away” and galvanized to hold their ground. After flanking the British attackers, the Americans slowly pushed the British back and after the British withdrawal, Washington had his troops end the pursuit.
