Help with identifying arabic medal/token dated 1936
« on: June 18, 2019, 08:21:50 AM »
Hi, I'm hoping someone can help identify this token or medal.  I can make out the date in arabic as 1936.  It is 28mm, possibly brass, and with a milled edge.  Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Dear hantstoken, the medal is an Egyptian medal issued in memory of an Exhibition held in 1936 for Copper utensils, the first photo reads in Arabic:
تذكار معرض ١٩٣٦ الفابريقه الحسينيه لعمل الاواني النحاسيه للنحاسين بمصر
In memory of 1936 exhibition of al-Hosseiniyah fabrics for making copper utensils to the Coppersmiths in Misr (Egypt).
The second photos shows the logo for this group "Egyptian Coppersmiths".

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
