    This New York Life Insurance WWI Service Medal in14k gold is unlisted anywhere as far as I know. The medal is 28 x 36 mm in size, weighs 16.38 grams and is looped as issued. The ribbon type is unknown to me.

    The obverse has two kneeling figures holding up an eagle topped world globe between the dates 1917 and 1918 above “PRESENTED TO JOSEPH M. CULLEN THE NEW YORK LIFE INSURANCE CO.”

    The reverse has a triumphant Victory with a radiant “Army” and “Navy background between two laurel sprigs and above a formation of helmeted heads and a ribbon inscribed “FOR SERVICE IN THE WORLD WAR”.

    The edge is marked “CALDWELL 14K”. This stands for the T.E. Caldwell Co., a well known quality jewelry manufacturer in Philadelphia established in 1839.
