I have never seen one of these, anyone one of our numismatic veterans here that can help with a value?
These photos are from Google, still waiting for actual pics of the medal…
Thank you!

    Stack’s has a couple sales results, but they’re over a decade old. Pricing probably isn’t too far off from that though. Pricing will be eye-appeal dependent, not necessarily grade dependent.

    I always liked this medal, you can imagine that pelican is about to cough some chewed up fish into its babies' mouths, what a metaphor

    The letters in the legends appear to be very low relief with rounded edges. I can't tell if the medal really looks like that or I'm reading the picture wrong.

    The letters in the legends of this medal should have very square, very sharp edges. It's a bad sign if that's not the case.
