Found another Euro RR medal. By a "famous Belgian sculptor". I'm not sure about that, but I'm a sucker for old RR items. It will fit right in with my Belgian Congo Railway table medal made of Katanga copper.

I'm still after a French Indochina railway medal of any kind and have a French dealer looking for me. Also a French RR employee's orphan child's medal that was used for free passage on any French train. SW

Got it today with a pile of similar loot. The larger commemorates 50 years of railroading in Belgian Congo. It's made of copper from Katanga province and very robust.

The smaller is dedicated to a former director for... directing, I guess. The seller described these as "table medals". I'll wander over to hobby lobby and find a suitable shadow box for them. SW
