    De Witt murders

    [​IMG]

    De Witt Brothers Assassination Dutch Medal. White metal, 51 mm, 25.0 gm. Commemorating the murders of Johan and Cornelius De Witt in 1672, this Dutch medal features the conjoined busts of the brothers facing right and the Latin legend ILLVSTRISSIMI FRATRES JOHAN ET CORNEL DE WIT (the distinguished brothers Johan and Cornelius De Witt). An eight-line Dutch inscription within an ornate border fills the reverse. The edge is inscribed NIEMANT GELUCKIG VOOR SYN DOOT anno 1672 den 20 augusti. Johan, a leading statesman in Holland, was unpopular with the general populace due to his pro-French sentiments. He was lured into visiting his brother in prison, but it was an elaborate trap plotted by his political enemies. Once he arrived at the jail, an angry mob murdered him and his brother--their bodies torn to pieces and put on public display. This medal is remarkably well preserved, considering the delicate nature of the material. A few light hairlines are noted, but this piece grades AU otherwise.

    In the US we have a murdered president on our cent and one on our half dollar. I would delete this post, but I can't. You already covered these, but my browser was so slow, I didn't see it. Interesting thread though.
