So where are they? I know Remington (typewriter company) bought coin #1 for $10,000, and it sits in a museum, but what happened to the other three?

Q. David Bowers' book; Commemorative Coins of the United States: A Complete Encyclopedia, tells about the unveiling of the coins, and how these 4 were handled differently, but he only tells us what happened to coin #1.

Anyone know where 400, 1492, and 1892 are?

Said the frog, not dog.

Commems might have the answer. I hope anyway.

Ok, to assist the uninitiated, I had to scratch my head for a bit to figure out the significance of these #'s.

1... obviously, first coin pressed
1492... the year Columbus sailed the ocean blue
1892... the year of the World's Fair (Columbian Exposition) (duh)
400.... signifies the quadricentennial of Columbus' voyage

Sorry if this was obvious to everyone.

If anyone has the answer to where these coins might be, it would have to be commems.
