WWI Medal From Washington DC - District of Columbia
Very nice looking and rather uncommon WWI medal with a pleasant bronzed finish throughout. This was made for veterans from the DC area. The front shows winged Victory standing atop a globe with the capital building in the background. On the arms of the cross are 1917 and 1919 which represent the span of American involvement in that particular mess. Original ribbon and pin. Reverse reads "Presented by the citizens of the District of Columbia February 1919". The bottom of the reverse shows the manufacturer info "Made for Berry & Whitmore by the Robbins Co Attleboro Mass". Good looking medal for the price.
