Item SUR9 - Buff & Buff (Boston) Gift Medallion for Auto or Collection.
The Buff & Buff Mfg. Co.
produced transits and other fine surveying instruments in Boston from 1898
through 1962. At some point they produced this gift item for their customers
and friends. It is a bas relief metal oval medallion, measuring 4 inches high
and 3 inches wide, with the impression of a transit on its tripod, marked,
“Buff / Boston.” The paper that comes with the medallion notes that copper
wired attached to the back were meant for…”attaching thru top part of your
automobile radiator.” I would guess that this dates to the 1920s. It is a
great collectible for a surveying collector or auto enthusiast. Note that in
the descriptive paper, “Massachusets” is mispelled. With a copy of the
descriptive paper, it is Fine.
