Description Alan V. Weinberg comments: The extraordinary Canadian silver lifesaving medal was offered on eBay along with an antique desk belonging to the medal's recipient.I was able to convince the seller that no one would be interested in both items as one lot. He agreed to sell me the medal privately & offer the desk on eBay. When I took delivery- travelling all the way from Ca to Balto, Md on business - I was astonished to find it came in its original box with its original cased, vellum document. Oh, joy! In original case, with issue document.
