Fall 1979 issue of the Society Of Medalists; usual 73mm (2 & 7/8 inches) round bronze format. By Linda Harper. Obverse: Three clowns' faces, one full facing, between two in profile, LAUGHTER...MUSIC FROM THE HEART. Reverse: same composition, with expressions changed, TEARS...PURIFY THE SOUL. Harper's first medal–in fact, her first bas-relief work. She certainly understood the concept of the medal as an object to be held in the hand and turned over. Quite a nice circus related bronze.

Essentially Perfect condition. Boxes, usually with a number inked on the side, are free on request, but will require another $2 EACH for postage, as they change the packaging requirements.
