I have not found a large size BRONZE variety of this medal until I bought this one.
It remains a mystery to me at this time.

1892-1893 World's Columbian Exposition
Declaration of Independence So-Called Dollar


Eglit-36 and Eglit-36A. Nathan Eglit recorded two sizes for this design and assigned number 36 to the small size (37 mm.) medal that was produced in white metal with a "milled edge" and assigned number 36A to the large size (58 mm.) medal that was struck in white metal and aluminum by Maier Weinschenk and William Boldenweck.
So-Called Dollars by Hibler and Kappen mention Rudolph Laubenheimer of New York City was identified as a possible designer.

There was a unique GOLD medal presented to President Grover Cleveland.
On May 1, 1893, Maier Weinschenk and William Boldenweck delivered an address to President Grover Cleveland, presenting the historical world's fair medal in gold at the dedication of the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago.

Large size medals have the edge inscribed "Boldenweck & Co. Pat'd Oct. 7, 1890.

I have another that I believe to be of a heavier white metal composition that makes for a neat matching pair in my opinion. Link to that post : http://goccf.com/t/301479&whichpage=148#3021807

Interesting Michael Todd Theatre Café there BCTokens. Thanks for posting it! My favorite movie with Liz Taylor is Cleopatra.

I got my third tonight. See http://goccf.com/t/301479&whichpage=165#3108218

1892-1893 World's Columbian Exposition
Declaration of Independence So-Called Dollar


I found it listed for sale as pewter but from my experience in medal appearances, I suspected it was a "Silvered Bronze" version.

I now think from searching, that it is a higher grade, and perhaps Gem About Uncirculated, of a "White Metal" composition like the dark one I already have. The dark one must simply be a "toned" dark medal made of the same composition.
The three will look neat together anyway.
I can't say I know exactly what is going on with the 58.5 mm larger medals with this theme.
But I'll find out eventually.
From past sales I've researched, I did quite well price and condition wise.



My favorite album!
