    Recommended Posts

    Hello Sirs

    I know its not Cuba  but I hope someone can help! I recently acquired this medal. I would be most grateful if anyone could supply detailed information on this piece. It also came with a gold pin which I beleive is related in some way. A period box was with the items.

    It's Chilean, It's the Valparaiso medal, instituted in 1882 for the war with Bolivia 1879-81,  yours is the issue for the civilian naval artillery battalion, Officers received a gold medal, other ranks, your example received a silver medal. It is quite a scarce medal.
