And I've missed the connection to medals and tokens.


I apologize for any discomfort looking at my photos @999fine. It is my first time posting on this sub-forum and the title includes exonumia. I typically stay on the paper money area where I will return.

I edited my previous posts.

Good one Steve, I just saw one of those pirate Gasparilla's medals while looking around today.
Thanks for posting. I'm in a lull collecting the past few days. Stacking wood for the winter.
Coin show coming up, have to get some stuff ready for ANACS and looking forward to finding a dealer with a few binders or boxes of this kind of stuff.

I found this little keychain charm or token from World War II that has popped up around my house and then disappeared several times over the years. Now it is part of my collection with the rest.

1941 World War II Green Bakelite Victory Token / Keychain Charm


This green bakelite or catalin plastic round is holed for a keychain and is from the years of the Second World War.
Most of the original white paint remains.
Beethoven's Fifth Symphony begins with three short notes followed by one long one. Three dots and a dash is the Morse code for the letter V.
V is also the Roman numeral for five and stands for victory.

Churchill, of course, is probably the one historical figure most closely identified with the "V for Victory" sign in use among the Allies for much of the war.

It appears that Metropolitan Life had two medals for the New York World's Fair, one without a year date and another with the year 1940 which appears to be the scarcer of the two. In fact this recent addition of mine seems to be the only 1940 version sold on eBay in the past 3 months. Of course my search might have been faulty.

Can someone explain the occurrence of the Louisiana Purchase "NO STAR" version?

I cannot immediately explain the medal with and without star phenomena at this time except the "No star" is supposedly more scarce and I would only assume it came first and then the star was added to the die.

Let me look into it. I like that version of the Metropolitan Ins medal and the entire Churchill collection of Yarm!

The Churchill is a well-executed design. I remember when mages of him looked so old. Today a young man. Nice medal, yarm.

More recent (1960s) bronze medals seem more difficult than earlier medals to find in really nice condition. They seem really prone to discoloration, deterioration of finish and dark spotting. And it seems that die polishing is rough leaving quite a pattern of hairlines.

Hemisfair 1968 had a couple medal designs minted (by whom I do not know) This version came in the mail today.
