I am still interested in that series, but other that what came with my C&C sets, I have not really started it yet.

There are only a dozen or so US Presidents in history I really care for. Collecting the entire set Spruuuuu will be something to behold.


My knowledge of Presidential history is severely lacking, but these silver medals are simple and to the point and seemed like a set worth putting together. I would love the original peace medals for these guys, but they are way out of my price range!

I'm up to Madison now, so there are only five to go before I'm current and then the John Tyler medal is supposed to come out in August.

Oh that I was where I would be,
Then I would be where I am not,
Here I am where I must be,
Go where I would, I can not.

I agree.

At the very least, I may need to get my "fab four" (Lincoln, T. Roosevelt, Eisenhower, and Reagan) just to have them in that OGP. I already have them from C&C sets and I will eventually get a PCGS Ike for that set.

This 43mm medal commemorates Lord George Anson's voyage around the world from 1740-1744
as well as his victory over the French off Cape Finisterre in 1747. It was produced by L. Pingo
after Lord Anson's death in 1762. Eimer 616, MI ii 634/325.





NGC describes this medal as a restrike but perhaps "dated 1747" would be a better description.

This is a $0.50 coal token from The New River Company in Price Hill, WV. There are a few different denominations but I haven't seen any recent sold $0.50 denominations on the eBay. There is a listing on the token catalog with an updated value of mine but that is all I have seen as far as values go.

From what I understand the coal companies would pay in this type of scrip, have a general store with inflated prices, even rent the homes at the mine. This in fact would not be a very good deal for the miners as the wages would basically stay within the company.

More pictures and descriptions of the mine can be found at the link below.

I didn't go looking for this, but came across it when searching for Presidential Peace medals. Though the listing made no mention of it being silver, my research told me it should be and at $16 plus $16 shipping (from Australia) was below melt! Here's a link about it:

https://en.numista.com/catalogue/ex...a177496.html



The reverse design is neat because it combines the word "peace" in Hebrew, Arabic and English into one central element:






There is a larger (59mm) version with an identical design, but I haven't found any below melt, yet.

Nice snag Spruuuuu
A big sterling medal.
Looks like a hot day in the mountainous desert.

47 grams of .925 silver today has a bullion value of $35.43.
Looks like your cost is putting you a few bucks on the profit side.
My favorite album!
