Though no medal from L’Enfant’s design had previously been issued by the Society, an unofflcial piece had been struck about 1900 by tbe late Mr. Victor D Brenner, designer of the Lincoln one-cent coin. Apparently these medals were not placed on sale and the information concerning them has been given by Mr. Henry Russell Drowne, Marshal of the Society of the Cincinnati, who was presented with a copy by Mr. Brenner. The medal is struck in both bronze and white metal. It is slightly smaller { 1 % inches in diameter) than the Maryland Cincinnati medal of 1914, following somewhat the style of contemporary medals then made in France. The clouds, trees, etc are more distinct than in the former medal and the crossed branches of oak’ leaves at the bottom are omitted. T
