Victorian Fenian Raid Medal Pre-WW1 Original Not Named

This medal was awarded to members of the Imperial and Canadian forces who, between 1866 and 1870, took part in the suppression of raids by the Fenian Brotherhood, and Irish Republican organization based in the US, and Riel’s First Rebellion of 1870, the latter being generally referred to as the red River Expedition. These unsuccessful raids, conducted on British outposts in Canada, were attempts to pressure Britain to abandon it’s battle with Ireland. The piece is beautiful. With a lovely silver patina, the piece has a swivel feature at the top of the medal, to be able to spin it 360 degrees, to show whichever side you’d like. The original ribbon is in excellent condition, as is the medal itself, as this piece has been kept in a sleeve and case for the last 50-some-odd years (my grandfather’s time owning it). As always, any questions or queries will be promptly addressed and any requests will be taken care of by day’s end. We’re always happy to just chat about history!

Beautiful hard to find early USMC Good Conduct medal. Named to Wallace Sayre. It is dated August 14, 1910. Research shows he was also awarded Cuban Pacification medal #769. Condition; The brooch and drape are replacements. There is a small hole in the medal that was probably added by Mr. Sayre for some reason. It doesn’t detract from the medal in my opinion.
