Description Alan V. Weinberg comments: Most of these are hand-inscribed in the rev field to the Mexican War veteran. This is uninscribed but was so pristine I didn't care. Acquired at an early Pomona, Ca "Great Western " gun show which yielded so many medallic treasures when it was in 3 x a year operation. In their wisdom, Los Angeles County supervisors closed the gun show down as, accrding to them, too many gang members were buying automatic weapons there - despite an overwhelming attendance of off-duty law enforcement buying and selling at the show. Another good Governmental decision.
