Light signs of age related wear which you would expect. Full English Hallmarks which are clearly visible in pictures. 1885 with Birmingham Assay mark, I believe originally the piece was a standard fob medal but has since had the memento mori skull added to it, in my opinion this was to commemorate the passing/mourning of a Freemason. An Extremely rare piece with touches of someones personal history and i have tried to find any similar pieces but i truly believe this could be a one of a kind piece.
