1911 King George V and Queen Mary. Aluminum medal with hangers supporting a red silk ribbon with ensign in upper left corner, and H.B.C. in lower right corner. It is believed this medal was worn by Company employees in celebration of the even. The piece is considered very scarce with the ribbon still attached. This medal differs from Lot 602, Jeffrey Hoare Auctions, January 1994 [The D.E. Stewart Sale of HBC items] in that the reverse of the medal has the Manitoba Provincial Coat of Arms [buffalo], instead of the usual commemorative reverse with the crown and “George the fifth, King and Mary. Queen Consort” etc. Wear and fraying on ribbon, top and bottom where joined to hanger. Fine.
