Antique WCTU Gold Diamond Declamatory Medal

A raised diamond (tests positive) sits in the center surrounded by a wreath of laurels. This piece dates from the late 19th or early 20th century . Each piece tests for 14kt gold but neither is marked.
Marked on front: Declamatory, WCTU
Female crusaders established the WCTU in 1874 to campaign in favor of voting and legal rights for women and against alcohol consumption. With its motto of “Agitate-Educate-Legislate,” the WCTU led efforts to reform women and children’s welfare legislation.
A great addition to your antique religious or temperance collection or early holiday gift for the numismatist.
