Nice ones Dorado! I like collecting Joan of Arc medals and other items about her. I'll have to chase one of those down.

Got a few to add myself tonight.

1930's Frank Buck - "Bring 'em back alive"


Frank Buck was an adventurer who became world famous for his safari trips around the world and for bringing back over 100,000 live exotic and wild animals to the US for zoos and circuses. He appeared in adventure films and is a co star in Abbott & Costello's 1949 "Africa Screams".
He was the director for the San Diego Zoo. There were comic and adventure books for kids and bubble gum cards.
Frank Buck toured with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus and brought his popular "Jungle Camp" to the 1939 New York World's Fair. "Frank Buck's Jungleland" displayed rare birds, reptiles, and wild animals, along with a five-year-old trained orangutan named Jiggs. In addition, Buck provided a trio of performing Asian elephants, an 80-foot "monkey mountain" with 600 monkeys, and camel rides.
Frank Buck also wrote numerous books. In his time during the earlier half of the 20th century, he filled the imagination of kids and adults and was a big star known by all.

My 30th Different Heraldic Art Medal

1967 Nebraska Statehood Heraldic Art Medal

The Union Pacific was the eastern railroad company that started out in The Nebraska Territory and met the Central Pacific railroad company laying track from Sacramento California in the west on the Transcontinental Railroad at Promontory Summit, Utah on May 10, 1869.
Many workers died on the railroad from accidents.
Indians attacked many railroad crews, but most of the fighting took place along the Union Pacific line in Nebraska, Wyoming, and Colorado. Native Americans attacked not only out of revenge for the loss of their lands or in defense of their ways of life, but also because the construction crews often had many supplies that the Indians needed—food, weapons, livestock, and tools.
Union Pacific crews were harassed by Plains Indians, mainly because white hunters were slaughtering prodigious numbers of buffaloes to feed the construction crews.

Nearly every one of the construction managers and engineers who built the Union Pacific road had served as Union officers in the Civil War, and they brought their organizational and logistical prowess to bear in commanding the work. The chief railroad engineer, Grenville Dodge, had rebuilt lines in the South during the war while serving as a Union general.
On Dec. 2, 1863, construction began on the railroad in Omaha, Nebraska Territory, but only made 40 miles by the end of 1865. The following year the line made it 260 miles, stopping at North Platte, Nebraska Territory for the winter. In 1867 the road made it another 240 miles before stopping at Granite Canyon on the slopes of the Laramie Range west of Cheyenne. The following year construction raced across 500 miles of southern Wyoming, entering Utah at the beginning of 1869.

1997 Calamity Jane Buffalo Bill's Casino
Primm Nevada
10 Dollar Silver Strike

GDC mintmark
(Green Duck Corporation)


Martha Jane Canary or Cannary
May 1, 1852 - August 1, 1903
Calamity Jane, was an American frontierswoman and professional scout known for being an acquaintance of Wild Bill Hickok's.
Late in her life, she appeared in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show and at the 1901 Pan-American Exposition.
She was compassionate to others, especially to the sick and needy. This facet of her character contrasted with her daredevil ways and helped to make her a noted frontier figure.
She also wore men's clothing.
Much of what she claimed to have witnessed and participated in could not be proven.
She lacked formal education and suffered from alcoholism.

For more on Calamity Jane, I have posted another silver medal here and give a little history.

While I have not been able to post for some time, I just want to say thanks to those who have kept this thread alive with their medal interests.

So, "Thanks!"

Low milage on that one 999! Very nice.

I must mention that I was sent this 1901 Pan-Am instead of the 1905 Lewis & Clark shown earlier. So I am returning it tomorrow for my money back. $41.24 was a great deal on the one I showed up there which will be removed from my album and no longer shows, but I'll keep a small image of it here below for record. The Pan Am, I already have, and this one I got today certainly isn't worth $41.24!

Got this


instead of this

Now I have neither
My favorite album!
