Kingdom of Iraq Commemorative Table Medal

Recommended Posts

Picked this up the other day, don't know why the table medals form the kingdom intrigue me so much. Maybe the history and the road traveled tgo where we are now...in any event, they keep jumping out at me.

This is a commemorative medal for the opening of the New Baghdad Bridge in 1957. Not sure exactly where in the metropolitan area it is.....it's about 3 inches in diameter and with it's original fitted box.

The neat thing to me is the maker name on the bottom, Hugein, as well as the Iraqi store and address in Baghdad.

Any information is appreciated...thanks as always

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
