JACOB PERKINS WASHINGTON FUNERARY MEDAL

[Dick Hanscom of Alaska Rare Coins forwarded this article
from the Newburyport Daily News of Newburyport, MA, home
of colonial inventor and coiner Jacob Perkins.  While
there is nothing new on the Perkins museum there, the
article does feature a great image of a George Washington
Funerary Medal created by Perkins.

I'd be curious to know what people make of the image.
Is that a circular wicker frame surrounding the medal?
Is it some sort of bowl or plate?  What does the "Lot N"
notation signify?  -Editor]
