Amazing Bronze Medal from Barcelona in Original Box

$625.00

This medal is one of the treasures of the Kennel Collection in my opinion. It is in the custom made box of issue with the Barcelona maker on the inside silk of the lid. The medal sits in a rich beep blue velvet. The obverse has Columbus surrounded by events of his life and voyages; the reverse has a woman or effigy of Columbia standing next to a lion. The meaning seems to be to honor Columbus. The bronze is almost copper colored and on the reverse it is toned darker around much of the surface, no doubt from 125 years with the reverse face down in the box. The shipping includes postal insurance.
