nohope-ster Thanks for reading the thread. And thanks to everyone else too. How can I not add a copper CCF medal to my collection now?
PM has been sent. I noticed down the row there was one in items for sale on the left.

This black box will magically transform into a picture of my medal when it arrives.

2013 (minted) CCF Coin Community Family Copper Medal est. 2005

According to Rulau it was produced in 1860, so I guess it could be either. The reference to the constitution provides a strong case that it is more of a civil war token than a merchant token. Although he did categorized it as a merchant token.

Picked up a Belgian medal and several medals/tokens from the Netherlands. I will post them here with what I know -- I haven't done research yet -- and if anyone has anything to contribute about any of these pieces, please do so!!

#1 - Belgium, medalet or fob with loop
23mm diameter, brass or bronze
Leopold II obverse / reverse dated 12 July 1874, Gand (Ghent?)




#2 - Netherlands, 1978-dated token - Hoorn
30mm, white metal
Church on one side / coat of arms and value of "1 schelling" on the other




#3 - Netherlands, 1981-dated medal or token - Friesland
30mm, probably CuNi or more likely nickel steel, prooflike towards the middle

One side has Dutch maiden motif with Latin legend, similar to late 17th c. 1/2 3 Guilders of Friesland / the other has coat of arms and identifies Friesland




#4 - Netherlands - 1982-dated 500 Year Anniversary of Deventer medal or token
22.5mm, brass
One side has coat of arms and legend MONE NOVA DAVENTRIA
Other side has picture of a dome and Dutch legend, dual dated 1482-1982




#5 - Netherlands - no date medal or token
30mm, nickel or nickel brass
Possibly from Groningen.
One side (probably intentionally) blundered legend imitating a Kampen mint AV Noble of Philip II, should be "MON AUR CIVI CAMPEN VALO FLAN"
Other side has Dutch legend and map, "De Wereld Van De Hanze" and value of "1 Nobel"

1947 Lindbergh c.smith Gilt bronze proof-like so called Half Dollar


This medal is one of 4 gilt bronze versions of the collection of 1947 and 1948 c.smith so called half dollars that I have found so far.

Others I have found plated are 1947 Edison, Byrd and the 1948 Sampson.
In all there were 12 nickel proof-like medals.
8 - 1947 issues and
4 - 1948 which had a theme for the 50th anniversary of the Spanish American War.
This medal comes from the same die as the 1947 c.smith so-called half dollars but probably struck in an earlier or later year in bronze and plated.
A little confusing, but it is not one of the c.smith so called half dollars.
I also have a non plated dark bronze Lucky Lindbergh from the same dies.

For more info on these check out this link and the help I got from commems in the second post on c.smith.

I collect non sport trading cards that go along with many of my medals.
Here is a popular 1954 Topps Scoop Lindbergh Flies Atlantic No 3 in very nice condition I just had to have.
