Copied from a medal with lots of rough spots and die rust, including an apparent die break. It appears to be cast in lead and then bronzed. An odd piece because none of the originals show a die break.
Obv: LIBERTAS * AMERICANA. / in exergue: 4 JUIL. 1776.
Rev: blank except for a raised scalloped/patterned border
