British Marks and Commissioners
by: Milton

The hallmarks on the back of this medal identify the metallic composition ( 9 Karat Gold ) the initials of the maker, and the British mark, They do not identify what occasion or who commissioned or produced the medal or for what purpose. For that a good quality image of the front and back of the item would be necessary.
