Ballyhalbert is in Northern Ireland. You have a piece that is antique, as it is over 100 years old. There was a Royal Air Force base there at one time.

Since this is a unique medal, it would be very difficult to place a value as I feel sure it will be almost impossible to find a sold medal like this.
If I was looking for information, I would ask my questions on Reddit first and then go from there.
Don't forget: more pictures, measurements, any background information you may have; how did you get the medal? Family? purchase? You will have to join (free) and it is not always easy to post pictures but if you really want good information, keep asking until you get it posted.
