Title Silver medal, boxed
Nationality Israeli
Period c 1970
Price £45.00

This medal (5cm across) has Hebrew writing in raised relief on the obverse and, in English on the reverse, it says: 'In appreciation of support given to the cause of reviving the ancient soil of Israel'. It has a silver suspension bar and a blue and white silk ribbon. It is marked on the reverse '935' and 'sterling'.

There is a small tear in the centre of the ribbon, where perhaps the piece has been pinned on someone's noticeboard. The box is of olive wood and the condition generally is excellent.

Is this some sort of gardener's medal or is the inscription of a more metaphorical nature? Would be interested to know if anyone out there has any ideas!

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

testimonials

My order arrived this morning, thanks for the prompt delivery.

Two excellent original pieces, I must say.

Buckle is in minty condition retaining so much detail esp plummage on eagle's neck and chest, like to see those 'creases' on the legs also... a beautiful example of an early O&C buckle.

Belt is very interesting, rather thin, CROUPON stamped and also behind the tongue...maybe Allegmeine but no SS markings as you state. Beautiful piece none the less.

Thanks for a speedy transaction Chris, I am very happy with my purchase :)
