    I think we might do well to open a new forum for medals. I'm generally more interested in coins, but when I come across a spectacular medal like this one... Found it inventorying my neighbor's grandfather's coin collection. Appears to have been issued to commemorate the reopening of the Crystal Palace in Sydenham in 1854, but curiously I haven't been able to find any pictures of it on the internet--so here's mine. 85.5 grams 63 mm. Presumably silvered bronze.
    Any ideas what this might be worth?

    There is a free "search" service for images at TinEye.com but it is not very good for collectibles. For newspaper and magazine articles, sometimes it delivers several dozen hits.

    Once set up, you just right-click, and in 2 or 3 seconds, it will deliver a list of sources down the page (if there are any).

    Here's what it found for my "spiral stack of pennies" avatar:
