Unusual Medal Issued by the Government of Uruguay

$85.00

The obverse, with the seal of the country of Uruguay, is close to gem mint quality, while the reverse is a notch lower. It features the Agriculture Building. This is a relatively scarce medal and it strikes many as unusual in that it refers to Uruguay as an Oriental country. Few of us would consider Uruguay as part of the Orient; but by strict definition Orient refers to "eastern" and it doesn't need to be eastern on the entire globe. I don't know the signifcance of the agriculture building related to Uruguay. It's a scarce, not rare, and desirable medal missing from many collecions.
