The discussion last week of "colored" medals reminded me of an interesting piece that I recalled putting back in my accumulation of die sinker tokens some years ago. I've attached several images which you may be able to use; a written description follows:
W.H. Abbott, 143 W. 42nd St., New York, Bronze Tablets, Name Plates, Medals, Modeled & Etched //
French Glass Enamel In Devices, Marks & Monograms, Abbott (In Intertwined Letters).
Enameled brass, 38mm, partially incuse obverse lettering.
It is one heck of an attractive store card -- I especially like the stylized puzzle-like company name on the enameled reverse. It is the only example that I've run across in my 50+ years in numismatics.
Nice item! Does anyone have more information about W.H. Abbott?
