    Default Possible Spanish Medal Identifacation help needed!!

    I have this medal, but I have no idea what it is. Judging by the mounting style of the medal and the good quality in which it was made, my guess is that it is pre ww1 spanish. Any information on the medal or direction to what forum link I should go to for info on this kind of thing would be appreciated.

    Hi William,

    In my very humble opinion, it's definitely not a military award. It's some kind of civil service award from the late 19th century. Awarded to mayors, businessmen, city clerks etc. Also possibly some kind of award from a municipality, e.g. keys to the city. It could be Spanish but I doubt it. Most Spanish awards, even from this early period had very colorful ribbon. I've never seen another like it. Sorry I couldn't give you anything more definitive.
