This is a rare WWI Service Medal from Fort Plain New York. This medal was awarded in 1919 to "Mothers of Defenders of Liberty" and engraved to K. Lasher. On the obverse of the star shaped pin is an emblem with two women on either sides of a shield with an eagle between them and a banner under them that reads "EXELSIOR"
Approximately 1-3/4" x 1-1/8".
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
Chain links, horizontal pin with over-under catch
Obverse: "FOR MOTHERS OF DEFENDERS OF LIBERTY. EXELSIOR. Reverse: "PRESENTED BY THE PEOPLE OF FORT PLAIN N.Y. K. LASHER. 1919"
This is from a Homefront collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VBEZ17 LAGEX03/17
7- (Very Fine-): Light wear and oxidization. The letters on the banner on the obverse are difficult to make out due to the wear.
