1893 World's Columbian Exposition
Chocolate Medal. Obverse: Raised bust of Columbus in front of a globe with an eagle on the top. Around the bottom in a ribbon is "Genoa 1447 Palos 1492 San Salvador 1492 Chicago 1893". Reverse: Birds flying at the top, sea shells at the bottom, 3 turtles above the bottom and reeds with birds on both sides. In the center is the state seal with "1893 Commemorating Maryland's participation in the World's Columbian Exposition". There is a loop at top that is original. Eglit lists this as # 138, but that is a badge that includes a ribbon, so this may be off that ribbon. Size: 1 3/4" diameter. Condition: The medal is Extremely Fine with wonderful detail. Again, it may be from the badge.

Winning Bid: $ 135

Estimate: $ 35 - $ 50
