Medals and Trial Pieces

Item Description:

Medals and Trial Pieces, Great Britain, George V, Royal Victorian Medal, 1911, lead impression from an obverse matrix, bare head l., inscription around, 37.56mm. (MYB.13), extremely fine
*ex Colin Mackennal Kraay Collection and Baldwin’s vault
‘The reduction punch completed for the Royal Victorian Medal on 24th February 1911 included the letters Sc which Mackennal placed after his initials on several of his models of George V. The letters were therefore present on the matrix of 2nd June 1911 made from that punch and they combine with diameter and inscription to provide a close link with the lead impression. Unfortunately the matrix has not survived, so that complete certainty is not possible.’
