WCE Medal 3 Historical Events: Columbus Landing, Pilgrims & Declaration of Independence, Lot # 134
This is the well-known World's Columbian Expo white metal commemorative that managed to celebrate three major American historical events all on one dollar-sized medal. The three scenes include the ubiquitous Columbus landing scene, the Pilgrims likewise coming ashore and the signing of the Declaration of Independence. This medal is certainly unique among thousands of medals, with not one or even two events depicted but three all on one medal....and even managing to squeeze in busts of both Columbus and Washington as well! It is surpising that it features outstanding detail on the medal. A gun metal color almost indicating silver, but we are quite sure this is white metal. Look at the detail even on the smallest figures in the various dioramas.
