  1. I took a look at the WM version of this medal I have. It is 51mm, 25.5gms with the edge is inscribed in Dutch. Oddly, there appear to be more raised "rims" than on the silver version and leaves me with the impression that the outermost rim is attached (like a mount) but not part of the medal itself.
  2. This thread and Constanius' link covered the topic. Nevertheless, I had occasion to open up a 1936 version of this medal and examine the inner ring. The inner ring had a single lion hallmark on the outside and XVII etched in large letters on the inside.
  3. Out of curiosity I looked into the construction of the medal's case to see if there was the name of the manufacturer. Nothing. I was surprised how improvised it looked inside but I suppose 82mm medals weren't that common.
  4. 50 years of Worship as a priest? Nothing specific to a jubilee in the medallic record for 1869 http://numismatica-italiana.lamoneta.it/anno/1869
  5. Thanks, I don't think I would have ever made that connection! I searched and found quite a lot of interesting things about Christmas in Sweden in the meantime. Bob
  6. The case that came with this medal was so grimy I couldn’t make out the lettering. After a bit of cleaning, the lettering became much clearer but so far I’ve made no sense of it. Can anyone read fancy script like this?
  7. William Wyon was the subject of a posthumous laudatory medal in 1854. Produced by the Art Union of London, the portrait on this 56mm bronze medal (Eimer 1480, BHM 2535) was engraved by L.C.Wyon. Britannia stands atop four hippocampi on the reverse.
  8. I thought I'd add my only piece from 1813. Manchester Pitt club medal. Sorry, I don't have the weight of this one on hand.
  9. I came across an internet copy of Carlisle's "A Memoir of the Life and Works of William Wyon, Esq. A.R.A. " (link below). Here's one of Wyon's later works, BHM 2185, 1844, 73mm - Reopening of the Royal Exchange in frosted silver. The details on this high relief medal are awesome! https://books.google.com/books?id=IVcEAAAAQAAJ&pg=PA140&lpg=PA140&dq=william+wyon+memoirs&source=bl&ots=879i1jQmOT&sig=zFYmDbVFB3kg2Z7xCUsx2bVWA88&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0CEIQ6AEwA2oVChMIpcqx_c7JyAIVWFmICh0c2QvT#v=onepage&q=william%20wyon%20memoirs&f=false
  10. My nominee would be BHM 2351 (from Atlas Numismatics' inventory). http://atlasnumismatics.com/1031214/
  11. I thought I'd join the bandwagon with this Old Price Riots token (BHM 677) ">http://
  12. I've been trying to pick up a nice example of one of the several Old Price Riots medals (BHM 675, 676, 677) for some time. I was recently the underbidder on the first BHM 676 I had ever seen and thought the board might find it interesting. (Dr. Busso Peus image)
  13. I wasn't that impressed with my BHM 2743 (also produced for the 1862 exhibition). Bovy's medal is in better condition and also represents a new bust of Victoria for my collection! Bob
