Recommended Posts

Hello I am the Falko from Germany.
I am here occurred because I information about my medals dies
Queen Victoria (young) search.


Here I have pictures of the coin stamping die.


I did not find until now the Medal for comparison.
The stamp is the same size as a 5 German Reichsmark piece. (4 cm diameter)


Now I hope you can help me.



Greetings from Germany

Thanks for the welcome wishes.


I also wonder what Google often translated.
Is it really that the "die" is a coining dies?
Here I have a wax impression, like the Medal should look like.
Until I have a really good impression. Here came in the air moist wax.
The others are not so clear, and cracked.
There are certainly people who collect such a die more than me, then please contact me. This part is very old, and was found in an attic.
One question I have, how do you get the avatar a picture? That does not work with me.
Greetings Falke

This appears to be the identical bust, INDIAN MEDALS. Jubbulpore Exhibition, Bronze Medal, 1866, by W Wyon, bust of Queen Victoria to left, rev female figure of Industry laureates a woman standing before her, 43mm.


I suspect that your die was never actually used but the bust was. The English Wyon medals used the Latin REGINA, but some of the Indian medals used QUEEN.


I suggest that you send images to the British Museum. Good luck, quite an astounding find.

Got it!!! http://www.gold-stater.com/modern-coins.html astounding find, congratulations, glad to have been of help :bthumbsup:


The gothic script is rotated slightly so your die was not actually used to strike this medal but was probably part of the overall process, or there is another obscure Indian Victoria medal out there.

Wow! Great sleuthing! I assume the denticles and rim would be a separate part fitted to the main die?

I do not know, but I noticed the reference was from Puddester, = "British India Historical Medals by R.P. Puddester" so that would be the place to look for any other medals using the same bust & script type, where there is perhaps the perfect match.

my stamper was safe to use. He has significant impact in the metal,
It consists of 2 parts metal. A ring around the central part. You can see it easily on screen. Clear on the underside. Under loupe you see leihte Oker-yellow track in the middle of a tool.
How do I please get an avatar image from my hard drive?
It will be uploaded, but not to see.
