Yes,  very happy to get the 1914 Luzern, especially in that condition.  I assume it's true for you as well, but it's very, very rare (and lucky) when I am able to find anything in such nice condition.  

I also really like most Ticino pieces.  I think Ticino has some of the most beautiful shooting medals, but so hard to come by.  I'd love it if you could share anything you have.  Especially if it is some of the older medals, which I never get to see except in Richter's book.

Picture 3: Shows the text written on the inside of the wrapper once unfolded. The paper wrapper is folded in such a way that it is tucked into itself so it remains wrapped and intact.

R600a Geneve, Abbaye des Carabiniers
1875 
AR 
37mm 
Mintage: 100 
Rarity: RR 
Engraver: Samuel Mognetti / Antoine Bovy, Geneve

 

I am again, having difficulty adding pictures, the last couple I had to resize and now the quality is being compromised. Because of this, I am inserting pictures I posted on another site: this seems to work as a work-around.

Thank you for sharing these Rod.  That 1890 Frauenfeld gold medal is spectacular.  That must be a one of a kind piece.   I really like the 1862 Lugano medal as well.

Yes, the Frauenfeld medal is unique, it is beautiful and in fantastic condition. My Dad and I got this medal several years ago. It goes without saying that this medal is the plate specimen in Richter's catalog. In fact, my picture here is the same picture I sent Jürg Richter for the catalog. 

I very much like the 1862 Lugano medal but I am very happy and lucky to have 2 of the 1892 Glarus medals considering their condition and rarity.

Unbelievable. How often do you come across medals with their original packaging?

Finding medals in the original case is always a positive. I have been lucky enough to acquire some medals with the original winner's name tag on the case, medals with notes inside them regarding the shoot and or the recipient, and a number of souvenir medals that have their original price paperwork within. I have some very old shooting medals in their original paper wrappers as issued at the shoot. It is quite rewarding to find this type of paperwork included with a medal. But, I have to say that it is not common to find a medal in its "identified" original packaging

Not sure if I'm doing this right, first time here.  I hope I'm in the right thread.

I've looked on-line and can't find anything on this token. I found it in my grandfathers possessions. The token is 22 mm in diameter and weighs 3.8 grams.

Any help identifying this token or finding some documented resource links would be helpful.

Thanks!

Bob
