This medal is listed in Brown, British Historical Medals Volume I as BHM 2459 and Eimer, British Commemorative Medals and their Values as Eimer 1463. I would grade this medal Very Fine (Sheldon AU50) but I have provided high-resolution close up photos so you can decide on a grade for yourself.

For uncertified coins I provide a grading opinion using both the UK descriptive system and the Sheldon scale (based on ANA Grading Standards and/or PCGS Photograde) which will be better known to my US customers. I offer a grading opinion as a courtesy, but please examine the high resolution close up photos carefully and decide on a grade for yourself.
