Details

1892 Buffalo Bill's Wild West Co. "Merit" medal. Bronze, 38 mm. Choice About Uncirculated. Nice glossy mahogany brown with lacquered surfaces, likely lacquered at the time of issue. Sharp and attractive with no notable surface issues. A handsome portrait medal of Buffalo Bill Cody, struck for distribution as prizes during the six-month 1892 London showing of "Buffalo Bill's Wild West," the most famous of the late 19th century traveling Western shows. Annie Oakley was a cast member at this time, along with dozens of Native Americans, cowboys, sharpshooters, and others. While Buffalo Bill remains one of the most famous characters from the Old West, numismatic mementoes of him (and this era in general) are few and far between. This little-known medal is quite scarce; if it was more common, it would likely be in higher demand.
