I won this for $1 at an moving estate sale that I was working at last month and really couldn't find much information on it.
The engraving on the back says, "Presented to Bro. F. Murphy C P by the Loyal Lincoln Lodge No. 21 for Services Rendered as Waiter."
The back bottom has "T&S" stamped on one side and 3 hallmarks on the other, the center one being a lion facing left (silver?)
I can't read the other engravings but could capture images under my Merlin Enhanced Vision magnifier and upload if it would help ID this medal.
The owner of the estate were African History professors at Penn State University and spent a lot of time overseas and in Africa, so this may not be of American origins.
