I have added a few medals recently, so I'll start with this one. Unfortunately, the case latch is missing, but I may move it to a new medal case anyway.

I know the Mint still sells this medal, but I don't think it comes with a case and the new cases are completely different. These green velvet cases are obviously older and I have seen them here and there with these presidential medals, but I don't know when they were made and whether or not they were sold with the medals at the time.

I have a Jefferson medal I will post later that I got a new Mint case for.

James Earle Fraser
Society of Medalists #45 (1952)
Pony Express - New Frontiers
Bronze and Silver variants. (I would love a silver one)
My pamphlet issued with Medal and more info than I am providing shown below as well.

The reverse of this Medal is a rework of the Oregon commemorative reverse James designed (his wife Laura was the other designer on the Oregon commem).

Simply a beautiful piece of art from one of my favorite artists.

That is a fantastic medal scopru and you did a great presentation there.

Reagan medal - Issued in 1981, was designed & sculptured by U.S. Mint Chief Engraver Elizabeth Jones.
I would certainly keep the green case/box. Probably one of the earliest struck. Maybe the President or White House had something to do with those in that case?

@scopru: Gorgeous example of the Fraser Pony Express/New Frontiers medal! Congrats! Thanks for sharing it here on CCF!

It's on my proverbial list for "someday" but I haven't been an active searcher for years. Maybe your beautiful medal will reinvigorate my search!?

Thanks also for sharing the SOM paperwork - I always enjoy reading such material.
