A fabulous bronze medal by Rene Baudichon to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Dunlop. The obverse of the rectangular medal depicts a bearded man (presumably J B Dunlop) on the right with a car and bi-plane on the left. The top left is engraved "J B Dunlop" and the bottom is marked "1888 40 Anniversaire 1928 de la Foundation de l'Industrie du Pneumatique". The reverse depicts a rubber plantation with a crouching man tapping latex from the tree in the foreground and a man walking away carrying buckets in the background with an industrial scene below and the words "Visite des Usines Dunlop Op a Montlucon Allier Societe Anonymede Pneumatiques". It is signed "R Baudichon". The rim is stamped "Bronze" and has a triangular mint mark. It is presented in a square maroon box with maroon velvet & silk interior. The top of the box is stamped "DUNLOP 1888-1928" in gold lettering with gold tooling around the edges.
