Nobel Prize Committee Silver Medal
I ran out of time for my diary this issue, but wanted to share one item I acquired recently and passed around at Tuesday's meeting of my Northern Virginia numismatic social group Nummis Nova. After I picked it up at the post office Monday I showed my family the envelope and said, "It's my Nobel Prize medal from Stockholm, Sweden."
My family wasn't impressed, but the Nummis Nova crowd thought it was cool.
The edge is marked "1920 / SILVER". The eBay seller I purchased it from said it was a silver version given to members of the nominating committee for the Nobel Prize in medicine that year. Is anyone familiar with these?
There are a lot of Nobel replicas in the marketplace, but this looks like a genuine medal of the period.
