1883 East River Bridge Medal. Now known as the Brooklyn bridge. From looking online it seems they are scarce unholed.

I have been to NYC many times and saw the Brooklyn Bridge from every angle but could never go across it because I was almost always in an 18 wheeler. Neat medal! Thanks for posting it.
My favorite album!

I have a citrus-related collection outside of coins and medals and thought this a worthwhile addition. I believe this is an exhibitor's medal for the 29TH NATIONAL ORANGE SHOW, 1935. The show was held annually in San Bernardino CA beginning in 1911. The show was a great attraction at one time claiming 500,000 visitors. More well-known are colorful postcards of the various exhibits. This is the first medal I've come across for the show.





Meant to be worn, the red ribbon has a pinback. The medal itself is uniface.

Coins were meant to be spent.

@999fine: Neat piece! Congrats on adding it to your collection. Finding them nice and intact is often difficult. It looks like you did well with yours!

I have a few hanging medals/badges in my collection, primarily those with a connection to the commemorative coins that I enjoy collecting.
