Upcycled Vintage 1962 Gold Shooting Medallion Necklace
Gold toned shooting competition medal from the Salem Hunting 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 "Four Positions" category, "Fifty Yards". The engraved medal shows the four positions and has great detailing including a round red background that matched the ribbon the medallion hung from. The overall shape of this medal eludes to a Maltese cross. The bars have 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.
For added interest and character In designing the necklace, we utilized brass barrel fishing swivels and cable links. The resulting design is modern and fashion forward.
Length: 20" with an added fishing swivel as a 1" extender chain
A great collectible item that can worn in a modern way.
Included with your purchase is the original box, ribbon and the pin bar that shows the name of the Salem Hunting Club and the year of 1962. Pin this on your lapel or hunting cap as a bonus! (See last photo)
We have several of these from different shooting events and in different metal types such as antique silver and antique brass. See our listings.
