One of the best shells we has seen for Clay in this form. The surface on both sides retain a large percentage of the gold gilt which originally covered this brass shell. About 1” and is brass encased from the period. We also have a rare Lewis Cass version of this same design used in the latter 1848 campaign. Estimate: $500-600
