    I have never seen this medal in the US and it doesn’t look like US manufacturing to me.

    It has the artist’s name on it and he’s definitely French. He made a few diffent medals of that period.

    Is this a larger table medal?

    Hi
    I live in France now and I have become very interested in french war medals.
    Usually I can look them up and know what they are but I have found one that I cannot
    find anywhere.
    It has General Joffre on the front with his name on the top and LA FRANCE RECONNAISSANTE on the bottom.
    On the reverse it has the words VAINCRE OU MOURIR and on the left hand side from top to bottom it looks like
    acanthus leaves.
    It is a small rectangular medal and it looks to be silver or silver plate.
    Can anyone give me any info on this please?
    Thank you.

    This is a French "patriotic" medal as many have been produced during WW1 to support the Army and the Forces.

    Here is a pic of yours.
