Pure Americana. This antique medallion is from the late 1800s. It's an early labor union trade piece for the...AMALGAMATED ASS'N. OF IRON. STEEL & TIN WORKERS.

The gold-tone medallion features a soaring eagle on the top and a round celluloid insert set in the metal shield. The medal has graphics of two shaking hands and scales of justice. It reads...IN UNION IS STRENGTH. The back of the medallion has a bar that most likely once hung from a ribbon.

Amalgamated Ass'n of Iron and Steel Workers (commonly known as the AA) was an American labor union formed in 1876 to represent iron and steel workers. It partnered with the Steel Workers Organizing Committee and CIO in November 1935. Both organizations disbanded in May 1942 to form a new organization, the United Steelworkers.

The medallion measures 2 by 2 1/2 inches. Back is hallmarked by Whitehead & Hoag of Newark, N.J. Excellent vintage condition. Rare old union piece.
