ARTIFACT: This is a named circa 1905 life-saving medal for the New York Volunteer Life Saving Corps (NYVLSC). Many states where no federally-run life-saving stations existed had their own lifesaving corps. The medal was presented to Frank A.

The medal is in bronze, and is in three parts: an eagle atop Digan’s name, a lifeboat hanging below that and a life preserver, anchor and oars as the bottom-most medallion.

VINTAGE: Circa 1905.

SIZE: Approximately 3-5/16” in height and 1-3/16” in width.


ATTACHMENT: Horizontal pin with C catch, chain links.
