4 Victorian Silver Cased Farming Medals

Tags:

Offered here is a very rare set of medals all awarded to the same farming family and contained within their original fitted case.

All have been tested as sterling silver and as was the case with many such medals and medallions of the time they do not carry a hallmark.

The largest example on the left has glass panel to front and back which has protected the medal superbly , slight edge toning to both side’s which will easily clean if you can get the glass off, This one is marked from Birmingham Agricultural Exhibition Southern and is engraved ‘1876 To Mr James Ogg Breeder for best fat steer class 24’ the reverse has a superbly detailed scene of farmyard animals and marked beneath with Ottley medallist Birmingham, measures 56mm in diameter and weighs 92 grammes.

The next largest is a Smithfield Club example which is marked to the rim with the following ‘As Breeder best beast in class XXVIII 1876 J Ogg Westerton Forgue Aberdeen, this one measures 49mm in diameter and weighs 66 grammes.

The 2 smaller ones are identical in size (29mm in diameter) one does have its top loop mount missing.

Both of these are engraved to William Ogg , one for ploughing in 1891 and the other for ploughing 1873.

Very unusual to find such a group offered for sale ,
