WCE Very Rare, Unusual 90mm & 5+ Ounce Medal Like 1893 Rare Presentation Medal #1186
This huge medal appears as if it is chrome plated; might be silver or might not be but it is the only one I have ever seen.
It measures 90mm and weighs more than 5 ounces.
While it is modern, struck in 1992 or 1993 for the anniversary of the fair, it is a rarity that I assume many of you would find highly desirable and that also may be absent in the collection of perhaps everyone reading this! It is patterned after the beautiful design that was on the rare medal presented at the end of the fair by Harlow Higinbotham to directors of various fair departments.
This is one of the view modern medals we have ever purchased, and it is the second Columbian one in this sale. The beautiful geometric medal from Portugal is the other and both woud be pretty impressive additions to any WCE collection.
Because of its size and weight and the need to ship it well protected in a box we couldn't automatically combine shipping, but it is quite likely that if you should purchase other medals there would be no additional postage required; flat items would be another story. But we ALWAYS do our best to minimize your shipping costs by combining items where possible or even juggling to send in two different parcels, etc.
