My 2nd Empire items

Recommended Posts

I finally found myself a nice Sacristain China 1860 medal. I'll now be able to finish my French frame. Thought I'd share this pic of my 2nd Empire items going into it.

This is the first one I had ever seen up close. I was salivating profusely... The price brought me back to reality though. Then my wife looked at me, smiled and said "go for it"... I darn near fainted! I had it in my breast pocket the entire trip back refusing to pack it even in my carry on.

Some colleagues have expressed doubt as to the China medal's authenticity due to the ball suspension. :unsure:

I scanned the maker's mark on the reverse in extra high resolution, is anybody familiar with a crab mark?
