Heritage sale 3042, lot 30056
This specimen was lot 30056 in Heritage sale 3042 (Long Beach, September 2015), where it sold for $1,057.50. The catalog description noted, "Muhammad Ali Shah silver "Medal for Loyalty" AH1326 (1908) CH VF, 48 mm. 41.05 gm. An immense silver medal featuring the bust of the Shah surrounded by crossed arms and legend (as notated by Baldwin's): al-sultan bin al-sultan bin al-sultan bin al-sultan wa'l-khaqan bin al-khaqan bin al-khaqan bin al-khaqan al-Sultan Muhammad 'Ali Shah Qajar Shahanshah Iran. The reverse depicts the emblematic Lion of Persia wielding a sabre with the radiant sun behind, wreaths encircling, and the Qajar crown at top. The following inscriptions encircle the design motif (as notated by Baldwin's): shah peresti "royalist", ghayrat "zealous", wafa "faithful", rashadat "well-behaved." Struck during a tumultuous time in Iranian history known as the bombardment of the Majlis, this is a crudely-manufactured silver medal that was most-likely presented to loyal soldiers. Despite a shallow-strike, the attractively-designed motifs are most pleasing and aside from the previous sale of this selection through Baldwin's, this is a rarely, if ever offered medal. Ex. Baldwin's Islamic Auction 07/11, Lot 820. Sold with certificate."
