A Normal School was a teacher's college and then it expanded. The building was initially known as the castle.


The medal is struck in aluminum and extremely well struck up. The detail is fantastic. It is approximately silver dollar sized. I think it was $15. I couldn't pass it up for my aluminum collection at that price.
