Nice, rich brassy brown and gold color. Rims broken or irregular in places on both sides. Discoloration/corrosion spots on front and back. Mr. Ford was unable to attribute this piece but believed it to be an Indian medal of the reign. The cataloguer has done no better but suggests it was an archery and not an Indian medal.
