Upcycled Vintage 1962 Antique Brass Shooting Medallion Necklace
Antique Brass shooting competition medal from the Lorain Rifle and Pistol Club, Inc, 1962, is converted into this stylish unisex necklace.
We reused both the medallion as well as the two bars indicating the particular shooting category. This medal was for the ".22 Rapid Fire" category, "Expert Class 2nd". The engraved medal shows a .22 revolver and has great detailing including a star with a tail as if to symbolize a shooting star. It also has two round targets on each bottom corner. A great looking medal and has an art deco appeal. Each bars has the name of the competition category on them.
Most medals of this kind were manufactured by Blackinton & Co. out of Attleboro, Massachussetts. They were the major maker of medals for many years. Their stamp is on the lower back of the medallion.
We designed the necklace using a round connector ring above the medallion and then oval flat link cable chain for the chain lengths. The resulting design is modern and fashion forward.
Lobster clasp closure.
A great collectible item that can worn in a modern way.
Included with your purchase is the original box, ribbon and the tie bar that shows the name of the Lorain Rifle and Pistol Club and the year of 1962. Wear this on a tie, your lapel or ball/hunting cap as a bonus! (See last photo)
We have several of these from different shooting events and in different metal types such as gold and antique silver. See our listings.
