Antique Sterling Silver Medal
Lumphanan Games 1893.
In magnificent order with good clear marks.
Measures 52mm top to bottom and 46mm across.
This mark stamped KON is very rare indeed and seldom seen and when pieces are found they do generate plenty of interest.
Prior to Robb working in Ballater, William Robb initially set up his business in Kincardine O’Neil.
Marks with either the KO’N or K’ON are rare and its believed only a small number of items remain to this day. The actual time Robb worked from Kincardine O’Neil is as yet unknown.

Lumphanan is thought to be the site of the Battle of Lumphanan of 1057 AD, when Malcolm III of Scotland defeated Macbeth of Scotland. Macbeth was mortally wounded after retreating with his men over the Cairnamounth Pass to take his last stand at the Battle of Lumphanan. There is a prophecy that foretells he was wounded at Lumphanan and died at Scone, 60 miles to the south, some days later.
