1917 New York City Committee Belgium War Mission Medal
A beautiful gilt medal on a silk ribbon in the colors of the flag of Belgium. The top suspension bar has the designation of "Committee". The reverse of the medal has the relief wording of "The Mayor and Committee of citizens of the city of New York to honor and welcome the Belgian War Mission to the United States of America August 21 1917." Some slight wear to the ribbon but an impressive and striking medal.
