Scarce Fiber Medal Apparently Naming a Mosque

$115.00

The building depiction on the medal bears some resemblance to the Moorish Palace which had a single large blue dome. It is uncertain what building may be shown but if it is a mosque it would be all or part of a building on the Midway. One mosque was inside another building to provide a place for Muslim prayer during the Exposition. Thisi is just about the best looking of this medal we have ever seen. It is made of some type of pressed fiber and while not seen often, when it is it generally has far less detail. It is unlisted in Eglit.
