Medal: US Presidential Inauguration 1880 to Date
Inauguration medals are issued and sold to commemorate US Presidents' assumption of office. Usually tens of thousands of medals are produced, so there are plenty to go around. Typical prices range from $20 to $500, depending on condition and date of issue. They are usually made of bronze, although some come in silver and gold.
Aside from the obvious defects in the pattern, fake medals usually have mushy, weak details. There is a good discussion of this medal over at the Coin Doctor.
