This Antique placard is in good condition, showing some minor scuffing and minor oxidation
I am pleased to offer this Buenos Aires Instituto Para El Estudio Y Tratamiento Del Cancer (Institute for the Study and Treatment of Cancer) Bronze Placard Medal from 1914.
I believe this was a cornerstone placard as the words “Piedra Fundamental” (cornerstone) are found on the front, and was created to celebrate the finalization of the construction for this institute.
The back lists the names people important to the institute, such as a Minister of justice and Public instruction, Minister of Public Works, Rector of the Buenos Aires University, President of the Academy of Medicine, and others.
Measures about 1-3/8 H” x 2-1/16″ W
