    Greetings all. My daughter bought a heavy bronze medallion at a flea market in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania over the weekend. It has an agricultural motif on the front, (stylized shepherd and sheep) and raised lettering on the back. I'm sure it is from Poland, but the internet translators don't work on most of the words, so I'm thinking they may be proper place names. I'm hoping one of our Polish speaking members would be able to translate it. As far as I can tell, it reads:

    III MIEDZYNARODOWY KONGRES ROZRODU ZWIERZAT, KRAKOW 1976

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Regards,
    Don

    Wow! That was fast. Thank you Michael. When I told her what it meant just now she laughed. She thought it might have been religious in nature with the shepherd and flock motif. Regardless, she still likes it for the stylized artwork on the face. I'm sure there is an interesting story about how it made it all the way from Krakow to Lancaster PA. Thank you again.
    Regards,
    Don
