Temperance Medal - TYRANT ALCOHOL

Medals | MedallicMan

I have intensively researched certain temperance medals and have become fascinated by the earliest which include the varieties engraved by James Bale (circa 1840's) for the WASHINGTON TEMPERANCE BENEVOLENT SOCIETY. This is most commonly referred to as the 'TYRANT ALCOHOL' medal. The very scarce but occasionally appearing at major auctions is the variety is Baker.332 (and subtypes).
