Description Alan V. Weinberg comments: A superb, prooflike gold lifesaving medal masterfully engraved. Appears to be two or even three assembled pieces as the high relief rim was affixed and then it appears the inner beaded border was also inserted around the flat, thin engraved planchet. Found at the Pomona Ca gun show years ago.
