100th Anniversary of the Forestry Institute in St Petersburg 1903 - Table Medal in Bronze.

76.4 mm wide; weighs 214.0 grams. Engraved by Skudnov.

Obverse shows the conjoined portraits of Alexander I and Nicholas II with their names. Reverse shows the institute's headquarters building and the inscriptions "St. Petersburg Forestry Institute" and "1803- 1903".

Very fine, with no edge knocks that would distract from the medal's presentation. The relief on the trees on the reverse is particularly attractive; A few of the high points on the faces of the emperors show green discoloration which may or may not be removable without having to bring the whole medal to a bright polish.

/Mikhail Dyakov, "Medals of the Russian Empire, Part 7, 1894-1917", page 244, fig. 1383.1/
