Sumserbrown, do you think it might be a re-issue?

Some years ago an old patient of mine- Im a doctor - show me your collection. He had the Brazilian medal for the WW1 who belong to his grandpa. But you father decided years ago to cut the holder so the medal can fit in a coin's collector book. Ok, no big deal.  When he died, her wife decided to present me with the medal, but she decided - for my despair!! - to polish it and put a new holder after she pierced a new hole on it (!!!!). She said "the medal is now a decent present to you, not that piece of trash my husband had". 

Ok, now I have this medal, but I like it a lot, as it have all this histories behind.

Graham,

 

Without close-ups of the obverse/reverse it is difficult to tell from the posted pics.

 

Give-away points are the J.S. marking on the obverse and the diacritic markings on the reverse. The images posted by Lambert on 13 November 2013 has a couple of well-lit pictures which can help with identifying the close-up details required.

 

Having seen one or two of these items close-up it looks okay but you would really want to obtain some close-up pics before making any decision.

 

Regards from Australia,
Rob

    • 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.
