I understand that the Paris mint introduced the Cornucopia (Corne d'abondance) edge mark in 1880. I also believe that in 1843 bronze medals were stamped CUIVRE on the edge and that in 1880, BRONZE was substituted for CUIVRE. My dilemma is this: I have medals with both the Cornucopia (suggesting a post-1880 date) and CUIVRE (suggesting a pre-1880 date). Any advice as to resolution? Thanks for any input …..
