An attractive 75mm, 276 gram "Treaty No.6" Indian Treaty Medal in tested .999 Silver with an antiqued matte finish, fixed suspension loop at top, almost certainly struck to commemorate the Treaty's centennial in 1976. Very similar to a Treaty 6 Centennial medal we auctioned in 2020 for $1,100, commissioned for selected presentation during the Centennial ceremonies held at Saddle Lake Indian Reserve in Alberta (as described to us by the seller, a former employee of Indian and Northern Affairs Canada) . This medal, however, stays true and identical to the original design of the Treaty Medal, with no textual reference to the 1976 milestone. An impressive and undoubtely very scarce modern "Indian Chief" medal, worthy of some proper research.
