The First World's Fair held in the United States. The New York Crystal Palace was located on 5th Avenue and 42nd Street, also known as Bryant Park.
Final Bid
 Chocolate Medal. Obverse: 3 drapes figures, one with a crown, one with wings and one kneeling on the ground. In very small letters on the lower left is "J.A. Oertel Del:". Underneath the image in small letters is "C. C. Wright SC.". Reverse: There is a wreath around the edge with a shield at the bottom. In the center is "Exhibition of Industry of All Nations. New York 1853." These medals were award medals, and they were not marked with a winner's name. The medal has 3 cuts in the edge where metal pieces are fitted to hold the medal into a frame. The original frame or holder is included although it was broken when the medal was removed and the medal will no longer stay in the holder. One clip that goes into the edge of the medal is included. Size: 2 1/4" diameter. Condition: Excellent with a little corrosion at the edge at 7 o'clock on the obverse and a tiny spot of it on the reverse (and a spot on the outer edge).  
$ 335
