Description

Small bronze medal found in original box with description of medal. Box description states: ""ALLIED RELIEF MEDAL, The Motto is inspired by the inscription upon one of George Washington's dress swords. On the shield, held together by the Sword of War and supported by the American Eagle with the ideals of the 13 original States (the stars on the border), we see Great Britain and her colonies (the ship) divided by water from the Latin races. France (the rooster), Italy (the Cross of Savoy) and Montenegro (the Lion's head). To the right the Russian Bear breaks out towards the sea and the Belgian Lion appeals to England and France. The E's are the first 4 letters of Serbia's motto ""Union creates strength"" and the Rising Sun is Japan's insignia."" The medal is just as it's description states. There is a shield, with the eagle behind it and around the border of the medal states: ""DO RIGHT AND FEAR NO MAN"". Original box stored with medal.
