As promised, my scans. Not very good but the best I could get. Roll Eyes

Obverse.

There is actually much more detail to the flag, figures and eagle.

Closer. Smile

I understand there are accepted variations so show yours for discussion.

At least it appears to be H.C. could be H. G. ?

A different color scan, it shows some detail better but is still distorted.

I see after reveiwing my own post that my memory of acquisition has failed. Growing old I guess...but here is a picture of the reverse of mine. Hopefully it has not lost too much clarity to the resizing. My version is the unslanted "G". Upon looking at it under the magnifying lamp it appears to have the same level of detail to the figures on the obverse as the other "flower war" medals I have. As to the correct color of case... I agree...who knows? One like mine was recently sold on the Guild. If you can use my image to go side-by-side with yours, please do so Joe for comparison. I can email larger jpg file to you that is a little better quality if you like. I would like to say that I have also enjoyed your many informative posts. Best regards, Duane

Duane, as per your request I replaced the image but by the time I got it sized to fit it got smaller. Here is your obverse.

Well that's a little better, but still a little fuzzy. I make no claim to originality of this piece and will not be offended by opinions. I have had two of these medals, but only this one with a case, as I recall. Let's see some others and have a good sample to compare.Regards, Duane

Would any one else wish to participate? Perhaps some one with better image skills than me. Smile Mine are all washed out.
