L'ASSOCIATION DES DAMES FRANÇAISES RECONNAISSANTE

Edge: BRONZE
Silver plated
26.2g
36.2mm

Normally they'd be issued with a name and time period.  So I think we can safely say it was never issued.
Somewhere between 1879 & 7/8/1940.
Always willing to trade.  See my profile for areas of interest.

Those wreaths of olive remind me of the 5 Francs Oudiné. Is it the size of a 5 Francs?

5 Francs Oudiné according to the net was 37mm.  So, a little smaller at 36.2mm.

hello
You should not confuse "union of the French ladies"  did only the good and "the union of the  French women" depending on the French communist party which sabotaged systematically weapons and all which left for Indochina.
sorry is in French
