A Davison's Nile Medal 1798, Bronze issue as awarded to ratings, sometime silvered and therefore representative of an award to junior officers, drilled between the ‘D’ and the ’N’ of Lord Nelson at 12 o’clock, and fitted with a silver suspension loop. This is possibly a replacement privately converted by an officer to replace a lost award, this would explain the reason for the award being silvered, the silvering having not been done recently.
