Description: An unusual find. This is a large size medal (63 mm diameter and weighs ~102 grams) made of bronze or bronzed brass (we are not sure). The medal shows the head of a Bulldog in high relief within a circle in the center of the obverse with the legend "THE-BVLLDOG-CLVB-OF-AMERICA" along the edge surrounding the head with a studded dog collar below the dog's head. The reverse has The Letters W.K.C./1924 engraved within a wreath along the edge and a blank scroll on the bottom. The medal has a plain edge. We have searched high and low on the internet and were unable to find a similar example. The medal has a beautiful brown patina and is in an extremely fine to almost uncirculated condition. A great unusual medal to add to your collection. Please carefully review the photos presented as they are part and parcel of our description.

Condition: The medal is in extremely fine to about uncirculated condition. The medal has all of its details well preserved with minimum wear to the highest points. It does have some scratches and minor dings to the surface. The medal has a dark patina that is evident on the obverse. The engraving on the reverse is brilliant and shows the color of what we believe is brass and hence our opinion that it could be made of bronzed brass. A very unusual nice-looking medal and possibly rare that would make a nice addition to your collection of dog related awards or medals.
