Vintage ITALIAN Gold Tone Medal with Blue Ribbon - “For Merit”
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer for your consideration....
AGE: C.1920 or so – possibly earlier but I am not sure
ITEM: A gold tone medal from ITALY that has a Maltese Cross-like medal topped with a crown. The wording on the inside of the medal is AL MERITO (for Merit) and the entire piece drops from a piece of blue grosgrain ribbon.
CONDITION: Mellow patina of age to the medal. No breaks or parts missing. Of course the pin that would have been at the top of the ribbon is missing.
METAL CONTENT: Gold Tone Metal, possibly gilt over brass.
HALLMARKS: None that I can find.
SIZE: From top of crown to bottom measures 1-5/8"; width is 7/8".
FINAL COMMENTS: Leave as is and add a pin to the top, or repurpose the medal into another design.
