This medal is a beautiful Art-Deco view of the complete beginning of Aviation after WW I . So full of grace and sensitivity..
Comment: A typical Art Deco bronze medal . Unfortunately, it is NOT in a beautiful condition (cleaned and showing some dings and wears). Anyway, it is a very collectible piece.
On the edge :"Bronze" and an edge mark: " cornucopia". This mark indicates this medal was struck after 1880 .This medal is NOT A RESTRIKE and was struck in 1920. est. $40/50
