This medal was issued by Thomas L Elder, a coin dealer in New York City, to commemorate the visit to the United States of officials of our allies. This meeting occurred in 1917 prior to the U.S. entering into WWI. The obverse die was the creation of Professor Montroville Dickeson, publisher of the American Numismatic Manual of 1859. Elder reused Dickeson’s die and created a new reverse die. TOP POP, only seven certified.
