Commentaire



1919 American Numismatic Society, p. 12, "Report of the Committee on Foreign Medals":
"The changing of the name of the Avenue du Trocadéro [in Paris] to the Avenue President Wilson will be commemorated by the striking of a medal, and medals of President Wilson and General Pershing have been designed by Legastelois in honor of those famous Americans, as well as being a tribute to America's participation in the war."
