German WW1 Navel canteen tokens. Acquired these in a lot of foreign coins. Always fun when something unexpected shows up.
Excellent!

To go with my recent Annie Oakley Silver round

I have numerous Buffalo Bill medals, collectibles and other ephemera. The Annie Oakley round is awesome so I thought I'd pick up this other Wild West Legends series round from the Intaglio Mint in Denver CO.

Thanks otto for posting! Looks like an old advertising token from London. Maybe it was worth a farthing in trade?

Picked up a second one of these.

1960's Goddess Selket - King Tut
Mardi Gras Gilt Doubloon




H. Alvin Sharpe Selket
Possibly an earlier undated Mardi Gras Doubloon most likely Gilt Bronze.
I have seen this in three compositions but they appear to be very scarce.


H. Alvin Sharpe died in 1982. He invented the Mardi Gras doubloon in 1959. He especially produced ship-themed doubloons for the Krewe of Poseidon, 1967-1983 (the 1983 version was ready at his death and appeared posthumously). He was also a jeweler, a watch maker and an intaglio print maker.

26.2 grams ("Heavies" catagory)
39.08 mm
2.9 mm
Initials HGJ on left and HAS on right on Tut side
Initials KWS on bottom right Selket side (Maybe for the Krewe of Westside?)

Heavies are doubloons made out of bronze, copper, silver oxide, nickel, sterling silver or other metals. They are generally of thicker gauge and often have a high-relief design and a patina applied (antiquing). They are much heavier than aluminum and not intended as "Throws" during the parades like aluminum are intended.
These are high-end doubloons, produced in lower quantity (some as low as just a few per year) and much more expensive than aluminum doubloons. As a high-end product, they tend to retain their value but don't show up in a lot of collections because of cost and limited availability.

Selket is probably more often known as Serket, but is also known as Selqet, Selcis or Serqet.
For relating to this medal, she will be Selket, the goddess of fertility, nature, animals, medicine, magic, and healing venomous stings and bites in Egyptian mythology from scorpians and snakes.
She was depicted in the form of a woman with a scorpian on her head and referred to as "She who gives breath" because of the way waterscorpions seem to breathe underwater.
In a strong association with the scorpion, which is famous to protect its young, also Selket symbolizes the strong protection of motherhood and nurturing of children.
Selket also was considered a protector of the dead, and protected the shrine for the canopic vases at the Tomb of King Tut, and appears here (center) in a painting at the 19th dynasty tomb of Nefertari, Valley of the Queens.
I believe this is the mask of King Tutankhamun on the opposite side of the medal.

1960's Pioneer Village Souvenir Token
Minden Nebraska

Not your typical "Roadside America" stop!


One of Nebraska's leading attractions, the Harold Warp Pioneer Village is a short 10-minute drive south of I-80 exit 279. The Pioneer Village is often described as the "Smithsonian of the Plains". Visitors from around the world use "Fantastic" "A wonderful American Treasure" "Amazing" and "Remarkable" to describe the 50,000 items in 26 buildings within the 20 acre museum. Exhibits are arranged in chronological order of development to vividly portray how America grew from the open hearth and grease lamps to supersonic speed and cell phones. You will find wagons, buggies, guns, trains, 350 antique automobiles, 100 tractors, 20 historic aircraft, Rogers' Statuary, clothing, glass and China, Historic Buildings and more. It is a great family destination and includes a motel and campground.

Information compliments of tripadvisor.
Check out the 265 picture gallery on their page of museum inventory.
This looks like a great place to visit. I like the cars the best! Wow!

1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition
No Star So-called Dollar


(better image will replace this when it arrives)
This is my second one of this type medal that has "No star".
It may be bronze where my other may be yellow bronze which would make it a different variety again.
I "cherry picked" it as I did with the other. These are far more scarce than those with stars and command a premium.
It isn't a great example but it was a good buy.

I will properly label my images with correct Hibler and Kappen shortly after it arrives and this image is updated.
Here's a link to my earlier post about the "No star" variety.

New Today for my Fairs & Exhibitions Collection:

CINCINNATI FALL FESTIVAL
1906
SOUVENIR





A fairly common medal according to what I've seen online.

One online source identified the building as the Cincinnati Music Hall.

Brass, 33mm


Coins were meant to be spent.
