ARTIFACT: This is a great 1890’s Swedish Society for Anthropology & Geography (American Branch) badge for a member of the Vega Medal Award Committee. The organization is similar to our own Natinal Geographic Society, but based out of Sweden. The society created the Vega Medal in 1881 on the occasion of Adolf Erik Nordenskiöld's return to Stockholm, after he had discovered the North East Passage. Since then, the Vega Medal has been awarded to a physical geographer roughly every three years. The society functions as a link between science and the public, especially in the subjects of anthropology and geography.

VINTAGE: Circa 1890’s

SIZE: Size: 2-1/4” x 2”

CONSTRUCTION/MATERIALS: Nickel plated Brass

ATTACHMENT: Vertical pin with over-under catch.

MARKINGS: “SWEDISH SOCIETY VEGA COMMITTEE. C.A.TWITCHELL & CO. 157 WASHINGTON STR. BOSTON”

ITEM NOTES: This is from an Society Badge collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. MBEX17 MBEX17 LCGEX5/17

CONDITION: 7- (Very Fine-): There is moderate wear on the badge, that being tarnish, staining, and scratches

GUARANTEE: As with all my items, this piece is guaranteed original.
