Medal: Austria Signvm Memoriae 1898
That's Emperor Franz Joseph (Franc Ios) of Austria on the front of this bronze medal. The back, signvm memoriae, commemorates the 50th anniversary of his reign in 1898.
These typically sell for $30 to $50 US dollars if in good shape. Medals with ribbons intact are worth more to medal collectors.
If you were selling your medal to a dealer, figure the dealer would want a 100% mark-up, which means he or she would pay half the retail price.
