An incredibly three dimensional and beautiful classical bust of Minerva wearing a Corinthian style helmet that caught my eye at the end of August this year. I've used the auction images since my scanner just can't tackle it.


A seldom seen original gilt bronze jeton/ medal produced for the French Royal Antiquarian Society right at the outset of the French Revolution. The designers being Dubois and De Puymaurin.

The obverse is beautiful in its simplicity. It's a beauty :ninja:

A similar medal by Wyon from 1814 for the Liverpool Royal Institute:



I like Dubois' work better... :ninja:


That is a really nice medal. Even though I must say that I too prefer Dubois' work, that one of yours would sit quite comfortably in my collection :-). He had his moments.


I get my Godesses mixed up Minerva...Athena.... so i'll shut up as to who is who but here's another neat pice, this time by Desaide. A jeton / medal produced for the masonic lodge `Mont-Sinai' in Paris. I was too lazy to remove it from its temporary housing while i get my collection in order. Any marks you see are actually on the holder.
