Buffalo Slag Company - 35 Years1948
BS-35
Iron

The medal's obverse bears streamlined locomotive on rail bridge over superhighway. Above, slag factory operations. Around, NO STRUCTURE IS BETTER THAN THE MATERIALS IN IT / THE BUFFALO SLAG COMPANY, INC.

The medal's reverse bears inscription: THE BUFFALO SLAG CO., INC. BUFFALO, N Y / QUALITY / MATERIALS / DEPENDABILITY / PROMPT SHIPMENTS / 35 YEARS of SERVICE / to / RAILRAODS / HIGHWAY DEPARTMENTS / BUILDING INDUSTRY / 1913 - 1948.

The medal's material is very appropriately iron and the obverse is as pretty as the reverse is dull. The style looks a bit like Menconi, but I have not seen this medal attributed to any artist. Any information would be appreciated.

This medal measures 89.9mm (3.5in) in diameter. The producer and mintage are not known.

I have seen this medal several times on eBay and it seems to trade between $40 and $85.
