1827 Medal, The Duchess Of Berry And The Duke Of Bordeaux. :
This huge and heavy medal is a rarity. I have found this 1827 medal with the youth head in a french sale house but the young boy was not in the uniform of this coin.
This is how the french sale house described their medal which is similar but had the boy head without a uniform:Medal, the Duchess of Berry and the Duke of Bordeaux.Paris.1827./ A DUCHESS OF Berri ..Head to the right of the Duchess of Berry below: DE PUYMAURIN OF DUBOIS.F..R / / / MDCCCXXVII.Child head of the Duke of Bordeaux on the left, below, signed g.51.0 mm.12 took this to the F.U.N. coin convention this summer in Florida and the foreign coin experts I consulted were stumped. It is clearly a professional medal by Dubois and is a much nicer medal than the scan shows- it is such a convex image that the scanner makes it seem darker than it is.I have no idea whether this is a unique medal, a rare medal, or both, as I am a coin collector and not a medal collector.However, it was such an interesting medal that I acquired it and now am willing to part with it to someone who knows its true value and significance. That is why I am posting it at a ridiculously low starting price of 99 cents and . You tell me what it is worth.
