France: Alfred Dreyfus affair medallion (ND); copper(?); no artist or makers mark; 28.5mm, 8g: busts of Alfred Dreyfus, Emil Zola and Fernand-Gustave-Gaston Labori (defense council to Dreyfus); and Major Ferdinand Walsin Esterhazy and Major Mercier du Paty de Clam.

As the medallion does not appear to favor one party over another in this long legal affair (1894-1906), it may date from the period of Dreyfus's re-trial and before his full exoneration (when there was, if only in formality, still some question regarding Dreyfus's innocence); circa. 1899-1900. In VF-EF with luster.
