Confederate General Robert E. Lee 1883 Medal
This is a very scarce medal struck in white metal that measures 43mm for the unveiling of his statue.
The front shows him lying on draped bed with the inscription, BORN JAN'Y 19th 1807 / DIED OCT 12th 1870.
The back says, In Memoriam / Unveiling Statue Of / Gen. R. E. Lee. / Lexington, Va. / June 28th. 1883.
Our medal here is in high grade with lots of original sheen still left. This is a nice large medal that is very difficult to find in any condition. Not many period items exist of Lee.
