Robbins - Type 1
1920 - 1930

The type 1 medals were made until late 1930.  They differed from the type 0 in that they had distinct feathers on the back.  There are at least 4 variations.  The pendant on the first three variations had a notch (Λ) on the back above the line of the tail feathers.  The other variation was made with a straight line where the back meets the tail feathers.

 

Type 1A - 1920-25
