QUERY: PEWTER TRIBUTE MEDALS INFORMATION SOUGHT

L. Michael Lawrence submitted this question for our readers. Can anyone help? -Editor

Pewter Tribute Medals IMG_1832 Pewter Tribute Medals IMG_1834

As a collector of French Art Nouveau medals, I have noted the recent appearance of "Pewter Tribute Medals" offered in the last few months by a single U.S. eBay seller. These pieces are inexpensive and appear to be modern reproductions of a variety of French medals, most notably of the Orpheus by Coudray.

Having purchased two of them, I observe that they are nicely done and quite accurate (Orpheus images attached). I have attempted to discover more about the origin and manufacture of these pieces by searching the internet and inquiring of the seller, but all websites lead right back to the eBay seller who is very polite but does not offer any details.

I'm curious to learn where and how these pieces are being made and seek input or information from E-Sylum readers.
