Young Indy's medallion

I just watched the "Hollywood Follies" episode for the first time and saw
that Young Indy was wearing a medallion in some scenes.


"Hollywood Follies", 52 minutes, Indy visits his girlfriend Claire

He appears to wear the same medallion in "Treasure of the Peacock's Eye".

Because of my interest in coins, I have been trying to identify the medallion.

I can not get a close view of the medallion, but from what I can see:

It appears to be a very high-relief silver coin or medal.
It looks like it does not have an inscription.
It may have the figure of a head on one side.
The size looks about 1-1/4" to 1-1/2" or 32mm to 34mm.

A couple of closeups:


Closeup #1


Closeup #2

Does anyone have any information or better pictures?

That's not the same locket or medallion that saves his life when he gets shot in WWI is it? Shot in Africa somewhere? If it is, I'm pretty sure there was a closeup of the dented necklace.

Here's a close-up of the locket from Oganga. Can't make out much more, but at least you get a better idea. Not sure it's a coin at all! Never noticed that Indy was wearing it in later episodes! There's a nice little piece of continuity for the series. (How did you like Hollywood Follies, Mr. Boyd?)

I have not seen all of the episodes of the show.

Was the medallion ever mentioned in any episode,
such as somebody giving it to him?

I thought that "Hollywood Follies" was a pretty good episode.

It starts with Indy watching the 1925 "Ben Hur";
I had watched the film a few weeks ago, along with the 1959 version,
so I recognized the film immediately.

The DVD "Extras" about von Stroheim and John Ford were more interesting, however.

The Perils of Cupid is the episode you're looking for.

Thank you for all of your help!

It looks like the item has been identified as the locket from Princess Sophie.

I was able to obtain a DVD of the "Perils of Cupid" episode and watched it today.
I have not seen the episode before.
