I have attached three images of a rather interesting medal. In total it weighs in at exactly 1 ounce. It is stamped 18K but it is not gold and perhaps a silver copy of a gold medal. The game depicted is of Jai a Lai or Pok At Pok which is the Mayan game that had deadly consequences for the loser.
The readers of The E-Sylum are some of the most intelligent in numismatics and perhaps someone can this piece. Neither the American Numismatic Association museum nor David Alexander were able to identify this medal.
Interesting item. I can't quite make out the monogram; it could be IEX, IEK, IER, EX, EK, ER... Can anyone help?
