Great additions these last few pages.

Madame Hendren doll Good Luck token.

If you guys know when these are from, I am interested, because I could not date them exactly. The first Madame Hendren doll was 1915 I believe.

I think your Madame Hendren token is one of many "Don't Worry Club " tokens that shared the swastika lucky charm reverse. Sometimes the swastika was reversed. No later than 1933, as that is when Hitler came on the scene, and the swastika lost favor.

A Good Luck Souvenir from Stanton Mo.



A late-night impulse buy, yea it was cheap.
Medal production is pretty cheap too, not much detail to admire.

For my Americana Collection

I need to go to bed earlier in the evening.

Coins were meant to be spent.

Good things come in small sizes sometimes.

Or, as Jacques Dutronc might say, "mini, mini, mini!"

Lovely mini-medal of Eugenie, wife of Napoleon III, Emperor of France. Probably ca. 1853-1854, for the royal wedding. Gilt over base metal. This bust (with no legend) is seen on other similar tiny medals of the era, with different reverses; and this reverse is found matched with a similar obverse bust but with an obverse legend and often many die cracks. Loop for ribbon, but no ribbon.

AV over copper or white metal. 1.0 gram, 13.0mm

Nice prooflike appearance. The gilding is almost fully intact.

At the other extreme, some of the wedding medals exceeded 55mm. The largest one I could find measured a whopping 63 mm. (!)

It's Presidents month. Lets be Honest!
1961 Abraham Lincoln Presidential Bronze Medal
Medallic Art Co


1961 George Washington Presidential Bronze Medal
Medallic Art Co


When I was a kid we had two "Red Letter Days" instead of "Presidents Day" for these two guys in February.
February 12 for Lincoln and February 22 for Washington.

The penny candy store sold two wild cherry suckers on a string that month in honor of George Washington who cut down his father's cherry tree as a kid. They were awesome and a good deal too.
I can't find a picture so I made my own.

Later the string became green plastic sticks and a little easier to break and share half with someone else.

The real myth goes that Washington was six years old he received a hatchet as a gift and damaged his father's cherry tree. When his father discovered what he had done, he became angry and confronted him.
Young George bravely said, "I cannot tell a lie, I did cut it with my hatchet."
Washington's father embraced him and rejoiced that his son's honesty was worth more than a thousand trees.


"Honest Abe" on managing a country store, did his very best in everything that he undertook for others.
One night, after closing the store, he counted over his cash. He discovered he had taken a few cents from a customer more than he should have in making change. He left the store, and walked a long distance to make things right.
Another time, arriving for work he found one of the weights was left on the scales by mistake. He shorted a woman the night before when he weighed out a package of tea for a woman. He thought how he had given her too little for her money.
Right away, he weighed out the tea she was due, and carried it to her. She was surprised and did not know that she was short in the amount of her purchase.

And I remember having a couple round cans of Lincoln logs in our toy box.

To be honest, I bought three out of four Presidential medals in one fell swoop to make my second set of the Mt. Rushmore Rock Stars.
Theodore Roosevelt got mixed up with this one who will be a giveaway at the Thursday Coin Club meeting.
I was a bit upset, but the seller made an honest mistake and wants nothing for FDR.

Not a fan of FDR.
The seller is making it right and sending Teddy Roosevelt in the morning and I still have to hunt down that Thomas Jefferson. (again!)
I wrote about it here last time I was doing this set.

1976 Bicentennial Wagon Trail Pilgrimage
Pennsylvania Bronze Medal


The Bicentennial Wagon Train Pilgrimage began a journey from Blaine, Washington on June 8, 1975 concluding at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania on July 4, 1976.
The wagon train pilgrimage traced the original covered wagon trade and transportation routes across the United States encompassing the Bozeman Trail, California Trail, Gila Trail, Great Wagon Road, Mormon Trail, Natchez Trace Trail, Old Post Road, Old Spanish Trail, Oregon Trail, Santa Fe Trail, and Wilderness Road.

I remember the Bicentennial quite well as I was fresh out of the navy in June. The town was painted red white and blue, right down to the fire hydrants! Hard to believe our 250th Anniversary is just a few years off already. We sure had patriotism in 76.
I hope it is renewed even stronger in 2026.

They came through center town Chambersburg Pennsylvania

Here's a short video. Nobody is carrying a cell phone.

The Mustard Seed Pocket Coin

I don't know how old this is. I have a personal reason why I got it and I have had a very old one in a glass ball for a charm or necklace for many years.

I had a little faith and made a significant discounted offer and it was accepted.
When time comes to sell all my coins and medals, I'll have a little faith too.

1960 EAST TINCUP DOLLAR
So Called Dollar HK-585




These were issued privately to commemorate the centennial celebration in Colorado of The Pony Express, and sold as souvenirs at "East Tincup" in Colorado, a replica of mining town of 1880's.
It opened in 1960 as a tourist attraction and was located 12 miles west of Denver on route U.S. 40.
Designed by W. M. Weber, Jr. who was the operator of East Tincup.
1,000 of these were struck by Wendell-Northwestern and sold for $1.00.



I recently picked up my fourth Shaving Permit, The other three are from Buffalo Bill Cody Days in Leavenworth Kansas and are somewhat related because some historians say Buffalo Bill did ride for the Pony Express, and so did Buffalo Bill. Others say he did not.
I'm still a little kid at heart and like to believe everything "Old West".
It's more fun that way.

TNG Was the shave permit to raise money for the celebration? Could you only shave if you had one?

From what I understand, these buttons were most popular during & sold to help fund events in the years between 1950 and the 1970's. There were "Brothers of the Brush", "Sisters of the Swish", Shaver, Shave or "Shaving Permits" and "Cosmetic Permits" you could find at Centennial celebrations of towns or counties and sometimes local fairs.
Depending on the locale, if you didn't have the permit you had to pay a fine.
"Brothers of the Brush" would exempt a person from being fined a couple or few dollars if caught at the event with a beard, and "Shaving Permits" would do just the opposite, where it was mandatory to have facial hair for the Centennial. Men found clean shaven would be fined without a "Shaver Permit".
The women did not escape the rules, as they either had to keep free of wearing cosmetic make-up or had to be all prettied up.
If you look up these on eBay, there are many places who enforced this over the years, but only in fun and most anyone would pay up one way or the other. There is still a smattering of these that are recent.
