    3 RRRR. Medals.

    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.
  2. 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

    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.

    Style is W&H and I'd put good money on the artist being Julio Kilenyi.
  5. 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
  6. If you have access to Standard Catalog of World Coins, you will find the mintmarks illustrated at the start of the France section
  7. Are there any Canadian medal collectors able to help me with this beauty? I can't find another online and the only reference, Canadian Diamond Jubilee Medals by R. W. Mclachan on Archive.org suffers from bad OCR scanning. The edges are so crisp and sharp you could cut yourself. Obverse: Laureated bust of the Queen, left, 1837 to her left, 1897 to her right. Around which: VICTORIA QUEEN. AND. EMPRESS Reverse: A shield bearing the arms of Great Britain ; outside of which a garter inscribed TO COMMEMORATE THE. SIXTIETH. YEAR. OF. MAJESTY'S. REIGN Around which is a narrow wreath of maple leaves with CANADA at the top and the date 1897 below. It is signed QUINT PHILA. (S. H. QUINT & SON This is a firm of engravers and medallists doing business in Philadelphia.) Bronze 38 mm. This medal, in aluminum, was distributed among the school children of Montreal by the Star newspaper.The same medal was distributed in bronze and silver as prizes by the Montreal Exposition Co. at their exhibition held in August 1897.
  8. Thank you Pat. Strangely the only BM reference that I could find was a pewter medal at 33 mm. Also, unless the museum has mistranscribed it there remains the HIS JURY/THE JURY divergence. Sadly the BM doesn't show an image but your BMH attribution sorted it out. The jury D&H 204 His jury D&H 205
  9. I'm having a few unexpected difficulties with this one. On the token, it is misspelled CORESPONDING, which I can't find. Also "Integrity of his jury" other examples give the jury.. I'm wondering if this is a contemporary knock off. Bronze 32 mm. Obv: THOS HARDY SECRETARY TO THE LONDON CORESPONDING SOCIY NOT GUILTY NOVR 5 1794 Rev: BY THE INTEGRITY OF HIS JURY WHO ARE JUDGES OF LAW AS WELL AS FACT THOS BUCK THOS WOOD WM FRAZER ADAM STAINMETZ JOHN CONNOP JOHN MERCER THOS SAYER RICHD CARTER NATL STONARD JOSH NICOL CHARRINGTON AINSLEY
  10. I'm having trouble finding any background on this medal. It features the Argentine CoA and date of independence, and is made from cannon metal captured at the Battle of Chacabuco in what is now Chile. Apart from one fleeting reference in an old Argentine auction catalogue there appears to be nothing on the web. Nice piece though.
  11. This has been solved by a clever chap on another forum thus: Appears in Whittlestone & Ewing Vol. 5 - King George V. Entry no. 5332 "Above a radiant crown on a shield of Royal Arms surrounded by four roundels (with the symbols of Canada, New Zealand, Australia & South Africa) and a Star of India all mounted on a wreath"
  12. Thanks Pat, it's 79k. For some reason my (digital) D&H goes no further than 79i.
  13. Although there are hundreds of varieties of these medals, this is something I've not seen before. The central Royal crest is supported by five shield roundels, and I can't identify any of them.
  14. I think this has to be a circulating forgery. Can't find this /////// edge attributed to any known authentic piece.
