1909 Alaska-Yukon Pacific Exposition looped Official Medal


(image will update when I re-holder and replace image soon)
A looped version, maybe HK-354 that is silver plated bronze. According to a very knowledgeable source, it is part of a ribbon or badge. All the looped medals are much more scarce than those that are not.
It was intentionally looped and attached to a dark blue ribbon and bar to market more of the mintage to visitors at the Alaska-Yukon Pacific Exposition.
Thanks to so-calledguy on eBay, I can show this ribbon he has.

The obverse shows the official emblem of Seattle's 1909 Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition was designed by Adelaide Hanscom of Seattle.

The emblem, with its three female figures, was used on programs, souvenirs, and other items.
The woman on the left holds a ship and represents East Asia.
The central figure holds gold nuggets and symbolizes Alaska.
The one on the right holds a railroad engine, symbolizing commerce with Seattle and the rest of the United States and her other hand is holding up a small oval with the bust of William H. Seward, "The Father of Alaska" who negotiated the Alaska Purchase in 1867. The purchase price for the 570,000 square miles from Russia was $7.2 million or 2-cents an acre at the time.

On the reverse is the Seal of the City of Seattle which also shows a small bust of Chief Seattle which is part of he Seal design itself.
I recently acquired a very scarce Seattle Day souvenir ticket with Chief Seattle on the front that I regularly hunted for over the past year and a half.

My favorite album!

1933 Wolfville Western Days Bronze One Bit Token No 2

Somewhat of a re-run post but a new addition.

This is my second "One Bit" from Wolfville Western Days. Although there is very little to no information available about these "One Bit" tokens, the font and design is remarkably similar to that of the Wolfville Western Days One Dollar.
These may have been a smaller denomination for making change with the larger dollar.
These are said to have been used in gambling and were used as "chips" instead of money to get around the law.
Rather than repeat all that, here is a link to my previous post with some history.
http://goccf.com/t/301479&whichpage=96#2890917



Alfred Henry Lewis (1855-1914) published a trio of books which I own.

Wolfville (1897)
Wolfville Days (1902)
and
Wolfville Nights (1902)

Each is a collection of sketches set in a fictional frontier settlement in the Arizona desert. Ominously called Wolfville, it was no doubt meant to emulate the very real town of Tombstone.

Illustrations by Frederic Remington are found throughout these books.
I recognized the reverse of the medal as his style and did the research to discover these books and the Author. I recognized the reverse design of the Dollar medal as his style and did the research to discover these books and the Author.
Apparently the design on the reverse is similar to this illustration found in one of these books, only from a different angle with a few differences in pose.
I also found a fourth book titled Wolfville Folks and added it to my collection.
My favorite album!

Oh, the wonderful things we collect. I've been inundated with other matters lately with no chance to post, or even add deserving comments. I appreciate the glances I get to take here, nonetheless.
Coins were meant to be spent.
