Recommended Posts

Hey guys , here's another one. I looked online with moderate success on this French Bronze Medal . 700th Anniversary of St Louis bringing the Crown of Thorns to Paris, 1939, a bronze medal by P.-M. Dammann for Arthus-Bertrand, standing figure of St Louis, reverse frontal elevation of Sainte-Chapelle, 80mm, edge stamped either 86 or 98. I got the above info on the DNW auction site , says valued at 50 to 60 English Silver Pounds. their's with a "64" stamped on side sold for 40 English silver pounds. I found an identical on the website of The University Museum of Bergen , in Norway.
