Description

OLD FRENCH SHOOTING PRIZE MEDAL

DEPICTS PRESIDENT MACMAHON (PPRESIDENT OF FRANCE FROM 1873 TO 1879).

A large gilt bronze medal measuring 2 inches in diameter (50mm) and in very fine condition.

Obverse - Detailed portrait of the president of France within the legend "Mac-Mahon President De La Republique".
Reverse - Central target with crossed rifles and flags within wreath. Around the top edge are the words "Societe Nationale Du Tir Des Communes" The name of "A.Duquesne. Director" is below.

President Mac-Mahon was an ex military man who had been involved in many military campaigns including the Crimean War and Franco Prussian War of 1871. He appreciated the importance of civilian shooting competitions and encouraged their use, believing that citizens were getting the benefit of the use of arms in preparation of any future wars.

As can be seen, the medal is not dated. However, President Mac-Mahon was in office from 1873 to 1879 so the medal can be safely dated to this period. (Circa 1875).

It is an interesting, good quality medal and would enhance any collection.

Postage cost from France to the U.K. by standard airmail will be 2.50p
