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:

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

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.
