MACO GI hallmark

Recommended Posts

Medal experts: I am trying to estimate a date of manufacture of a medal which is hallmarked on the modern style crimp broach MACO GI. This is not a hallmark Ive seen on a medal before. Thanks for any info

I don't have a picture of it, as it is not in my possession, but the medal is a modern restrike of the Army China Relief Expedition Medal w/ crimp broach. It looks much nicer than most of the more recent Lordship Industries or Graco restrikes with their faux-antique finish, and I was wondering if any one knew approximately when the "MACO GI" restrikes might date from.

MACO – in Joe ***************’s ‘Manufacturers of U.S. Metal Emblems - Alphabetical W.W.I to Present’ www.wehrmacht-awards.com/forums/showthread.php?p=8050447 he mentions two possible manufacturers under ‘M’: Maco-Boch, and Medallic Art Co. The latter appears with the designation MAco in this issue of the Medalblog https://medalblog.wordpress.com/2011/08/15/u-s-mints-chief-engravers-relationship-with-medallic-art-co/

More about MAco here https://coinweek.com/coins/medals-and-tokens/the-ans-acquires-the-archives-of-the-medallic-art-company/

and here http://medallicartcollector.com/medallic-art-company.shtml

Hope this helps.
