Here is a fascinating little medal that I stumbled across. This tag appears to have at one point been attached to a ribbon. It belonged to the President of the American Electric Railway Claims Association at a Convention in 1919.This would be perfect for railroad collectors, or your assemblage art or jewelry designs.

DETAILS: Please see below for some interesting historical provenance related to this item! This appears to be made of rose gold [an alloy] as it has a very faint pinkish hue to the gold tone, however I am not certain of it's makeup as there are no makers marks and the metal has not been tested. Engraved in absolutely gorgeous script on the front is: "President Amer Elec Ry Claims Assoc 1916-17-18-19" and on the reverse side: "Presented at Atlantic City Convention October 1919" The shape is a shield atop a circle of laurels. There are two spots for hanging this medal.

Excerpts of the minutes from this convention at: http://books.google.com/books?id=MiopAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA1&lpg=PA1&dq=amer.+elec.+railway+claims+assoc+1919&source=bl&ots=vcCt90KZOf&sig=FYmDqbFOzTa9I56I7G_W3GamJ1I&hl=en#v=onepage&q=amer.%20elec.%20railway%20claims%20assoc%201919&f=false

This measures about 1-1/4" in diameter.

ERA: Vintage Antique. Year 1919.

There is a bit of surface scratching on the face, which you can see in the detail photos. Also, a light patina or tarnish. This is a gorgeous piece! I would consider it in VERY GOOD to EXCELLENT vintage condition for being nearly 100 years old.
