A friend of mine found this medal and can't find anything about it. On the back is the company Whittfield and Hoague New Jersey. This company was bought out long ago and the old company records were destroyed. Any help appreciated.

thanks

Are you sure it's a medal? Looks like a nice old decorative peice. Either way, it is very cool. Wish I could help. Nice find.

I'm wondering if it may have been something the government gave to a chief of an indian tribe. If so, it nay have some serious value, if it could be authenticated.
