Iowa Fiberbox Company - 25th Anniversary Medal1945
Silver-plated Bronze

The uniface medal's obverse bears a kneeling brave, facing left, wearing feather headdress, balancing an open box on shoulder. Around, IOWA FIBER · BOX · COMPANY · KEOKUK, IOWA · TWENTY-FIFTH · ANNIVERSARY; in truncation, STRENGTH; to left and right of figure, 1920 / 1945; signed above figure's foot, CHAMBELLAN / Sc

This very handsome uniface medal comes screwed onto a wooden paperweight. It is beautifully modeled and has all the hallmarks of one of Chambellan's better commercial medals. While I have not removed the medal from its base to check for a mint mark, I assume that it was struck by the Medallic Art Company of New York.

The round medal measures 63mm in diameter and is struck in silver-plated bronze.
