Description Alan V. Weinberg comments: This is a hand-engraved, hand-constructed multi-part gold medal with an added extremely high relief rim. It came with a funereal CDV for the medal recipient and had apparently been acquired directly from the descendant family. Bought on eBay and mis-described as brass!A big impressive and presumably unique medal; I've not seen another.
