Recommended Posts

Gentlemen,

Some questions on this medal;

1-What did the ribbon look like that this medal was suspended from?

2-Who manufactured the medal?

3-Who was the designer etc for this medal?

4-Was it awarded or simply purchased as a memento?

Any thing that you add regarding information on this medal would be appreciated.

Regards,

Gordon

This is the wrong forum. You need to post it the Imperial orders forum. But, I will tell you that this is just a patriotic, commemorative medal that was likely given out to attendees of the 25 year celebration. Or maybe they had to buy it. If it had a ribbon, at all it likely was red white and black.
