I imagine that would be quite near impossible but maybe someday the other 7 will come up for sale but missing this one.
I bet the other 7 are scattered all over the place.
If I were betting on a man to find them, I would bet on you.

I made this video a few years back of a set in my collection.

An official Hawaii Statehood Medal Progression Set by Medallic Art Co.

Thanks DrDarryl! Nice video.
I wonder about the edge lettering.
I also wonder if ALL the medals for distribution are made this way. I kind of doubt it.

Are they all struck several times and trimmed? Or is this just for progression or process sets?
Coins are not made this way. They are struck within a collar that has any lettered edge or reeding right on the collar die itself.
The Roosevelt item I show here obviously does not have edge lettering, but "normal" ones do show silver 999 and others also have Medallic Art Co. on the edge.
My favorite album!

I thought folks might enjoy this documentary from about 90 years ago about how high-relief medals are made.

Coins are not made this way. They are struck within a collar that has any lettered edge or reeding right on the collar die itself.

Most high-relief medals require being struck multiple times in order to fully bring up their design. The process set demonstrates how more and more of the detail is brought up with each strike. With modern presses and planchet preparation techniques, it's possible that fewer strikes are needed, but multiple strikes are still the norm.

Traditionally, many high-relief medals were struck without a collar and required trimming (not just those for process sets). Some were, however, struck with a collar; the collar eliminated the need for the trimming step.

I think I watched the entire movie without blinking once. I was going to play it in the background while doing something here in the man cave but oh no, once it started, I was glued fast. That was awesome.
When the four sculptors presented that finished medal I was thinking to myself, "Those guys know how much went into the finished medal" and didn't the narrator mention the very same point a few seconds later.

Thanks for posting that and thanks for the follow-up comment.
I have a considerably better appreciation for our medals. Especially those with great detail and high relief.
