1894 25th Wedding Anniversary Medal


Recommended Posts

Gents,

I’d like to share my latest acquisition with you – a cased 25th Wedding Anniversary Commemorative Medal.

The case is slightly dented alongside, but I’m hesitating trying any “repair” (e.g. pushing the “scratch/dent “from the inside). There might be a risk that the lacquer surface will flake.

I may clean the surface of the case, but won’t touch this nice patina of the medal itself.

There is a visible indentation in the insight of the case and I guess, this medal “slept” in the case for a long time. I’m curious, how long it will take to get the award document for this beauty… :whistle:

Does anybody know, if foreigners were awarded with this medal? For example, any foreign ambassadors or diplomats, who joined this ceremony?

Comments are welcome - enjoy the pics!

BR,

Chris

Love this patina! :love:

Congrats man! :beer:

Next stop - attachicon.gif9.jpg :whistle:

Nope! One out of 33 awarded medals is too tough (although I'm still wondering, how much realy very minted...) ;)

I think getting a citation is much easier compare to the golden Wedding Com. Medal.

BTW, any ideas about any possible awarded medals to foreigners?

BR, Chris

Pessimist! :whistle:

Why not? Especially since according to statute it was awarded to every human being that was invited to the wedding celebration ;)

…to be honest, I don’t believe here in a golden version of this medal.

 

Case looks mostly like the one for the Promulgation medal and the medal itself could be a “deadly-polished†silver medal. I’m not sure about the base material of this medal.

 

I would had expect some more prominent case with some golden flower décor (compare to the case of the silver medal) for the golden Wedding Anniversary Medal...

 

BR,

Chris

    • 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.
