  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. A favourite from my collection:
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. Style is W&H and I'd put good money on the artist being Julio Kilenyi.
  10. 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
  11. If you have access to Standard Catalog of World Coins, you will find the mintmarks illustrated at the start of the France section
  12. 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.
