    Trying to find the origin of this piece. It's silver dollar in size. Any assistance would be appreciated.

    I have seen some similar Civil War reunion medals. Are those two soldiers or a soldier and an indian?

    I can't say for sure but looks like two teepees, one on each side....maybe a third right in the middle. Thanks for taking a look, I'll start looking for Civil War tokens now....

    Thanks Hendrix! Found a very similiar medallion, Reunion of the Blue and Grey.....it's two soldiers and three tents. The reverse of mine is different than the one I located but close enough to solve....many thanks.

    Very cool. Those reunions were a big deal back in the early 1900's.

    Don't know if it will help, but if I'm correct, most of those are from the Gettysburg reunions. I think that had special medals for veterans of each state with the Gettysburg monument for their particular state on the back of the medal.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    You may find these words interesting: One side reads, "Reunion of the Blue and the Gray" with a vignette of soldiers shaking hands, the reverse with the words, "Fort Sanders Its Memory Alone Remains" with a vignette showing a fort with Union flag.
    Source--along with a pic of the entire medal described--though still not exactly yours, but both medals may have the Fort Sanders connection:

    That likely explains the variation on the reverse. Once again, thank you.
