Help Identifying Unknown Medal

Hello everyone. My grandfather has a military medal that he obtained at a garage sale. Both he and I have searched the internet and books extensively and we cannot identify it. We don't believe it is American or British, as we have looked through exhaustive lists of those countries' medals.

I am not sure if it is in fact a WWI medal, however it seems quite old and that is my best guess.

Here is a picture of the medal: If anyone could tell me anything about it I'd be very grateful. Thank You!

Anything on the back? I can't make out the marks/symbols on the front.

Hello and welcome to the forum, I believe that the medal is Egyptian based on the Crown that surmounts the medal, it appears to be the crown of the Egyptian Royal Family.

I have pretty good kung fu when it comes to identifying some things, lord knows why. I initially thought it looked Belgian to me and while I was wrong about that, the info I gathered along the way did lead me to the right one.

Happy to have been of assistance!
