This is the reverse of a silver medal of the Partick Archers in Glasgow, given to them by the shipbuilder, David Tod. The medal, dated 1846, was presented to William Ferguson.

The reverse is inscribed, 'Presented by David Tod Esq./To the Partick Archers/Gained at Butts by William Ferguson 23rd July 1846'.

Archery was popular between 1830 and 1860, when it was overtaken by rifle shooting. Almost exclusively confined to the middle classes, it was one of the few sports in which women participated.
