Good Morning Again Everyone…..

After complaining about not winning the Langho Tribute Medal on eBay I guess I have to balance the scales by showing a medallion / medallet that I did win……

At a lot lower price of $20.00 US plus postage……. I wonder how many of these exist now with original silk ribbon and old style safety pin……

That medallet was issued in the "good old days" of the Empire! Thank you for showing it.
