Unidentified medal find

8 posts in this topic

Hi all.


I have had this for years and i have been unable to "sell" it as i love the work put in to the item.

Also i have never tried to identify it anyone got any ideas


It is probably brass with enamel Yellow flower in the middle, red enamel in the quarters and white on the tips

The legend says IMPERIUM ET LIBERTAS with blue enamel also there seems to be an entwined PL below the ET

The reverse has a clasp and a hook With RD 41563 and JB and a symbol which looks like a Mitsubishi car badge


to me it looks like a ladys item !

Begin your search with the "Primrose League", as that is the five-petaled flower on the badge. My guess is ca. 1890.

Edited to add: the monogram at the bottom of the badge is "PL".

There is a slender connection to coins with this item, and that's the only reason I had any clue about it at all.


You can see a primrose on the back of some of our U.S. Colonial coinage:




I don't know anything about "the Dame", however!
