Uncirculated Bronze Medal with Unusual Image of Columbus

$65.00

This medal in the Kennel Collection is quite attractive and to the best of my knowledge, quite unusual and scarce. Based on seeing thousands of images of Columbus on medals and printed material, I've NEVER seen a curly headed rendition like this. John Kennel had noted on the holder that this medal was from a numismatic society. I cannot translate the text on the reverse. Also the brass planchet is quite thick. I assume that it was not related to the Fair but even the Eglit book seems to include many medals that feature Columbus but have nothing to do with the Fair.
