The Fort Fisher Restoration Committee of New Hanover County Confederate Centennial Comm.
This Fort Fisher medal was created by the commission to restore several segments of the fort to include gun emplacements and traverses containing underground magazines and bomb proofs. In addition a visitor center museum was to be completed in early 1965 and was to house exhibits pertaining to the Civil War and Fort Fisher. The medal has been stuck in crown size 1-17/32" with finely sculptured bas-relief.
The obverse shows an engraving of an original illustration made of one of the gun emplacements during the Civil War. On the revers appears a reproduction of the Confederate States Seal. The medals were stuck in .999 fin silver - serial numbered - in proof finish AND they were stuck in Bronze-Silver oxidized (this medal). Both strikes contain metal recovered from the sunken blockade runner "Modern Greece".
This medal was created by the New Hanover County Confederate Centennial Committee in association with the North Carolina Confederate Centennial Commission and was locally made in by Capitol Medals Inc., High Point, North Carolina.
