Medal That May be Masonic; Unsure

Recommended Posts

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!

Looks very Russian. Reverse resembles the medal for the Persian war.

Whether it is genuine or a fantasy piece, I can't say.

It is the Russian Medal for the Persian War 1826-1828.  Comes in two sizes: 21mm and 25mm. Whether it is genuine or a copy I have no idea.  The Russian medals of this period have been quite often faked.
