Hi, I have these 2 medals that I can't figure out.
The first one is Dutch and dated 1783. I found a small write-up about it but no other information whatsoever:
"Medal on the reinforcement of the bourgeoisie, abolition of stadholder's recommandations and the release of city councils for all denominations in Utrecht, penning footage copper gold metal, Utrecht city virgin seated under throne heaven hands gun to liberation corporist; with her foot paper on which RECOMMANDATION Left in background: the Dom Tower, UTECHTSE BURGERY ARMED DEN 24 JUNE 1783 RECOMANMANDATION ABOLISHED 11 AUG 1783 TO SUPPORT OF FREEDOM (circular in oak tree wreath) militaria"
The second medal is dated 1882 and portrays a Uruguayan colonel, Juan Belinzon. The medal has something to do with the arts.
