    Medal That May be Masonic; Unsure

    I recently acquired this as part of a coin collection. It's been suggested that it may be Masonic. Can someone tell me if they are familiar? Thanks!

    CHEMULPO 1904 Medal

    My apologies for reactivating this old thread, but this is what came up when I was searching in Google. I recently came across a medal that fits the description of what was determined to be a replica in this thread. However, I found a catalog online from Baldwin's Auctions in the UK that indicates that even if it was struck at a later date, it may still be of value (approx. $600+). So, I was hoping to get some additional feedback. I have attached images of the item in my possession. And, here is a link to the Baldwin's catalog that I found online: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=13&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwj13PnKt-7VAhULhlQKHfPgDn4QFghZMAw&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.baldwin.co.uk%2Fmedia%2Fcms%2Fauction-archive%2Fa316%2F07%20BALDWINS%20Argentum%20Auction%20-%20November2016%20-%2005%20-%20MILITARY%20MEDALS%20%2B%20BANKNOTES.pdf&usg=AFQjCNEbEfAu_elkewxymePjOIUP158GTA See page 7 of the PDF that the link will open up. There is definitely more indication online that what I have is a replica. Example, this looks like mine: http://www.warhobby.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=194 So I suppose the real question is: Do you think Baldwin's got duped? Or, is there potential value in my medal? I admit that theirs is in much better condition than my own, but what are your thoughts? Much appreciation for your help. I never knew there was an entire community devoted to this kind of stuff. I just happened to get my medals in a lot of coins I bought, posted in a coin forum and someone directed me here. I will create a separate thread for another item that is unidentified at the moment.
