Excellent and extremely rare new York Society of Military and Naval Officers medal of the world War. This medal was issued to officers in the society who served in WW1. First let me say this medal is extremely rare I know of only 2 other examples that exist total! One in slightly better shape and one in much worse shape. This medal is literally right out of the woodwork. It was found with a mini bar that had Society of the Revolution mini, society of colonial wars mini and this medal on it, two of the medals were 10k. It was also found with the large size colonial wars medal. Now onto the medal the brooch I believe is 10k or 14 solid I have seen enough gold and due to the age I suspect it most certainly is! Though the medal value far exceeds value of the gold brooch. The ribbon show wear and age but is solid and in decent shape it holds and displays the medal well. Medal itself is in excellent condition and the enamel is crisp! Get this rare piece of military history while you still can!
