A third medal of Mrs. Claypole was engraved
by an English medallist, James Kirk, about the year 1775. It was struck in silver and copper, and is not rare. It is circular; size, 1'35 inches in diameter ; and bears, obverse, bust of Mrs. Claypole to the right, exactly copied from
Simon's medal (No. I). The words kirk PEC. are in small letters at the sides of the bust. Reverse, a wreath formed of two laurel-branches tied together encloses the following inscription, ann cleypole daughter of Oliver cromwell.
The Christian name, of course, ought to be Elizabeth.
