This 1 5/8" diameter medal is not dated but is probably from the late 1800's-early 1900's. The medal appears to have some silver content rather than being a straight white metal. Interesting depiction of a Saintly 'TEMPERANCE' figure and a Devilish 'INTEMPERANCE' figure to one side, with the reverse stating The Band Of Hope Pledge..... ' I DO AGREE THAT I WILL NOT USE INTOXICATING LIQUORS AS A BEVERAGE' and the words Health, Innocence, and Peace in the scrolled banner.
