    What is it?

    Found this medal in an old box from my uncle. Track medal? What would it be made of? the back is smooth, and says: "W.I. 89".

    Could be Doc. I'm assuming that my uncle was in track. I think it is probably made from some cheap metal. doesn't have any shine.

    Glad to have you with us, Blurr!

    The style of your medal appears fairly similar to that of medals in a couple of c. 1920's-40's catalogs (Norris-Alister Ball Co., 1927; Wallenstein-Mayer Co., 1942.) Older stock (generic) amateur sports medals of this sort were generally offered in bronze, silver plate, gold plate, sterling silver, gold filled, and 10K gold.
