QUERY: LOUIS GOLD MEDAL INFORMATION SOUGHT

Here's a mystery item posted by Matthew Wittmann on the American Numismatic Society Pocket Change blog on May 7, 2015. -Editor

Louis Gold 1258 obverse Louis Gold 1258 reverse

This scalloped-edged medal was found by an amateur archaeologist in fill removed from a building site in downtown Manhattan. Everything else we know about it is on the medal itself, which is inscribed with a name, “LOUIS GOLD” and a number, “1258.” There is no further identifying information on the reverse, though I have included an image anyways. Have an idea about what this might be? Let us know in the comments or send us an email.

Can anyone help? To me, this looks less like a medal and more like a tool check or key tag. -Editor
