  1. Sadly you've washed out the image with too much light. Can you please take close cropped images of both sides and tell us the weight and diameter, also what you believe the metal to be.
  2. I think that it may be a coin case. There were similar cases in England to hold a sovereign or half sov.
  3. Barre is either this man https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacques-Jean_Barre or one of his two sons. Your image is unclear, is that the full extent to which it opens? I would usually expected to see a small knife blade concealed within.
  4. The top medal on this page: http://www.theeasterrising.eu/140RoyalVisits/RV.htm is the one usually attributed to Parkes. Count the shamrocks, there's a different number. A large variety of medallions were issued, only 4 or 5 officially, and the literature is sketchy. The official issues are listed in Lawrence Brown's British Historical Medals Volume 2. The BHM numbers start around the BHM 1130 mark.
  5. This design was used on a range of sporting trophies, frequently with a suspension loop. Although Victorii is a Romanian word, in this case it is merely a case of Deco styling. I would suggest that K. A. R. stands for King's African Rifles. https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/594236467/antiquevintage-silver-medalmedallion?ref=similar_items-26
  6. A favourite from my collection:
  7. This is beautiful and, as a Dieges & Cust fan, surprising. I love their academic and sporting medals but have never encountered anything like this. Sadly, there is little in the way of references for D&C.
  8. It's a Simcox and until I'd checked I was unaware that they'd made them in this style without the laurel wreath edge. I'm not so sure about the depression in the middle. Can you check by running numerous diameters through the centre that the hole is actually central? I'm getting the impression that it may be post mint damage.
  9. I think the population may be expanding. This one has a reeded edge and is struck on a 24 mm flan. Terrible condition but it's looking hopeful for a BHM 995.
  10. There's a new kid in town: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/C18th-Medallion-Token-Parate-Via-Domini-John-the-Baptist-Religious/123578893838?_trkparms=aid%3D444000%26algo%3DSOI.DEFAULT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20170221122447%26meid%3Db500c057ae304dc28539f81e14737665%26pid%3D100752%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D3%26sd%3D123570971789%26itm%3D123578893838&_trksid=p2047675.c100752.m1982
  11. He certainly worked for W&H in the late 20s-early 30s I'd still say the first one is definitely his, see the JOHN D. LARKIN company 50th anniversary medal for stylistic similarities.
  12. Style is W&H and I'd put good money on the artist being Julio Kilenyi.
  13. One sold recently: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Antique-Gorham-Bronze-Heavy-Paperweight-Eagle-Cleveland-Post-Office-Souvenir-NR/183225432618?hash=item2aa9163a2a:g:MB8AAOSwqDha-YIf
