National Geographic's Collectors Corner

Collaborative site for collectors, dealers, & anyone interested in our history.

I found this among my grandfather's things and was wondering about the rarity and the age of the piece. (I thought it was a watch fob, but wasn't sure) I collect National Geographic magazines, but I've never seen this. Does anyone know about this?

It is actually the medallion from a key ring.  It would have originally been attached to a small leather piece.  Complete examples are fairly common in the NGS collectors world.  In my opinion, this one has little value, if any, since it is incomplete.
