Web site visitor Ken Bachmann found our earlier articles about galvanos and provided images of some interesting items in his possession. They're too small to be galvanos, but looked to me like splashers or electrotypes of medals.
Ken writes: "These items were purchased from an estate an hour outside Toronto, Canada. The owners were of European descent and said the items had been passed down from their father. The collection itself was stored loosely in a box with other documents and miscellaneous items. The focus of the acquisition was a collection of WWI correspondence from a front line soldier."
Below is a link to a slide show of the both sides of each of the 48 pieces. -Editor
These appear to me to be 19th century electrotypes, mostly of 16th century and later gems, but I also recognize those of Benjamin Franklin and a 19th century Papal medal.
