I recently picked up this medal, it's supposed to be a tin/lead alloy but had kind of a strange but attractive red color to it. Seems to be coming off the high points, I don't know if it was painted with something?

No guessing about what this one is about, it spells it all out for you in the legends!

Picked up this "Good For" in a box of junk. I have no clue what the 6099 is.

I think it has been a year since I have added something to my medals collection. I was so taken by the posts from NumisEd and DrDarryl and their Pearl Harbor medals that I went on a hunt to find an eaxmple for my collection.

I turned up a pretty nice example, ungraded, but quite lustrous on the obverse. The reverse shows the mottled appearance as in the post from NumisEd.

This example has the copyright text.

Although I own the bronze version, I am still looking for the nickel or silver version of the "Remember Pearl Harbor" medal.

Nice Medals. Here is some additional information to print out and go along with the Remember Pearl Harbor medals including the ad ($6 per 100! bronze, 45 cents for sterling silver) and some photos - it was initially made available 69 days after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Mintages listed are (2M-379 (copper without Pat. Pending): 10,000 struck, 2M-380 (copper with Pat. Pending): mintage included above, 2M-381 (nickel): 5,000 struck, 2M-382 (sterling silver): unknown mintage https://coins.www.collectors-societ...aspx?s=12054 Here is photos of the sterling silver medal https://coins.www.collectors-societ...px?sc=205666

Can we get confirmation about the alloy - bronze or copper. Both metals seem to be used interchangeably.

Received this today. One of the largest medals I have at 75mm.



Hoover founded the CRB in October 1914, during World War I, which later became the Belgian American Educational Foundation, an independent philanthropy that supports the exchange of university students, scientists, and scholars between the United States and Belgium. Hoover became U.S. president in 1929.
