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. Digan on September 17, 1905 at Coney Island, New York fro saving someone from drowning. 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.


ITEM NOTES: This is from a United States Coast Guard collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VAGEX12 LDEJX3/12 SDEJX1/15

CONDITION: 7+ (Very Fine+): The medal shows some light to medium wear and has a handsome tarnish.

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
