    French Medallion

    Hi Folks:

    I saw this in a local flea market ...a large bronze French medallion.....which I don't know what it's for or...??? Science...or...military or school...or... 1852-65...something about 18 January 1862???

    Lady wanted 50 euro for it....and since I know nix about this...I took pictures.

    It had some dings...but it was large medallion and heavy. Thank you for your help.

    For me, there are quite a number of table medals from this period. It's unique and of course quite old, but I'd pass at EUR 50.

        Hi,


        hmmm i think that the medal may have been far worth than 50 euros in France.
        I'm pretty sure that the collection of this late collector was just amazing, and that her daughter proposed the coins for peanuts.

        More infos on the medal here :

        You will notice a very boring habit of French numismatic websites : they never show their (most of the time outrageous) sold prices...

        See You

          Vince, whatever those examples did sell for, you'll see they were impeccable. The original example - far from it.

            Hi,

            true to that, but local and/or Napoleonic collectors are still interested by damaged coins/medals.

            See You

              hello,

              it's a "souvenir" for an openning of a law school in town of Nancy but it's expensive for this type of medal.

              perhaps for numismatist/coin collector-expert

                Hi,

                yes, only for local (Epinal) and Napoleonic collectors.
                So it may have been less easy to resell it from the US.

                Condition is not that important for such medals.

                See You
