Edge Description



This medal type was originally produced under the title 'Noces d'argent' (Silver Wedding) with the space on the right on the reverse probably reserved for those who wished to engrave their names and date of marriage. This form, without reference to the Silver Wedding commemoration was produced for the wider art market.
