--------- Buttery, Austin (medal found - JUL 1885)

Neillsville True Republican: The silver medal found on Austin Buttery's farm in Levis (Clark Co., Wis.) is exciting a great deal of curiosity. A number of coin collectors have made the owner handsome offers for it, but as yet they have not got the prize. Much speculation is rife as to what chief received it from the government in 1825, etc. Perhaps the Indian department archives contain records of the medals given to chiefs who assisted the government in its frontier wars. It is not impossible that the medal was bestowed for services rendered in the war of 1812, so called.
