Iran medal?


Recommended Posts

Hi Gents,

I picked randomly up this medal yesterday and I would like to find out what it is.

I was quessing ruffly that it is something from Iran maybe. I remember green colour ribbon, what they commonly used and also the figure on the reverse looks from that area.

Any help would be great!

Dear Noor,

Not an Iranian medal, The reverse is an Assyrian statue - a mythical beast called a lamassu - see the 2004 British Iraq medal and the script cuniform from Mesopotamia - now Iraq. I would suggest that this is a Western manufactured piece of some age - possibly a society award or badge?

Regards, Owain

It looks like it was pressed minted, what is the metal type used for this piece?

-Owain does it have the original ribbon??

Thank you
