MEDALLION, OVAL – EAGLE ON ROCK ON FRONT W/OXIDIZED(DARK) BACKGROUND, SWORD IN DRAGON ON BACK W/INSCRIPTION. ALL APPEARS TO BE COIN SILVER(MEDAL AND CHAIN), DATED 1915 FOR GIVING MONEY/GOODS TO SEND TO POW’S(GERMAN) IN PRISON CAMPS. IT IS A ROUGH CAST MEDAL MADE FROM A MOLD RATHER THAN A DIE STRUCK AND I DO NOT BELIEVE IT IS ANY TYPE OF MODERN COPY (WHICH ARE USUALLY SILVER PLATED BRASS) – IT WAS JUST A CHEAP WAY TO PRODUCE IT. COIN SILVER WAS STILL USED DURING THIS PERIOD FOR MEDALS AND MEDALLIONS. IT IS ACTUALLY A PRETTY MEDALLION.
