Geoff Bell of Canada submitted these images of an enigmatic medal or medallion. It's hard to read but seems to say "William H. Harrison", the U.S. President. My search
for matching images came up empty. -Editor
I reached out to Alan V. Weinberg, who writes:
The medal is a muleing of an old 1860s WHH fantasy medal with a World War I medal depicting WWI charging soldiers, Ms Liberty / Victory and a screw press coinage mechanic.
Dewitt/Sullivan pictures it on page 620 as WHH-B as a political fantasy struck in the 1860s by C. Wyllys Betts with the obverse struck in WM and lead muled with several reverse dies. Geoff's
medal is circa 1918-20 from a well worn deteriorated WHH fantasy die and has nominal curiosity value
Unusual item, to say the least. Any other observations? -Editor
