I recently acquired this Dames of the Revolution society medal and would like to know if any one else has seen one before or has any information about it. It’s the first one I have seen in 35 years of collecting and it’s not listed in any of the usual references. I have been able to find a few mentions of the society in old newspaper articles. It appears to have been a very short lived society founded in 1896 by a group of ladies in and around New York City with a very small membership. They do not appear to have published any information about their society.
