K2708 Amazing 70mm bronze medal in original box of issue

$525.00

This appears by the description to be Eglit 111, but Eglit says the medal is 77mm in diameter, while this one is 70mm. Eglit certainly made a few mistakes and it could be just a typo. The medal is a rich chocolate bronze color and has Columbus on the deck of the Santa Maria along with crew members apparently in awe or relief to be sighting land. The reverse has Columbus at the court of Ferdinand and Isabella, behind him Native peoples he has brought from the voyage. The medal is in its original box, which is a very hard material covered with a canvas-like fabric. The box is very sturdy unlike most and it has fared quite well over the last 126 years.
