I've been preparing some medals for sale. Things I thought that I understood, but this one's a little different.
It's pretty much a basic French agricultural medal.
The obverse is a farmyard scene and the reverse bears the legend:
ENCOURAGEMENT A L'ÉLEVAGE
DÉPARTEMENT DU NORD

But just at 9 o/clock on the reverse is:

LE MEDAILLIER

There's also a signature between 3 & 4 o/clock on the obverse:

Albert E*********

The medal is edge marked Bronze with a Cornucopia poincon.
As far as I can work out, the medal was made by the Paris Mint for the company Le Medaillier, 13 Rue du Conservatoire, Paris

What I'd love to learn is a possible date and the namde of the sculptor.
