In addition, however, I have also posted about the design elements found on many of the coins over in the "Post Your..." galleries area, as well as within posts here under non-coin-specific titles.

Commems, my wife was born and raised in the same town as Frank Murphy, Harbor Beach MI. Both her Grandfathers were friends of Frank. We now live here and Murphy's house has been turned into a museum.

@bpoc1: Thanks for the info and personal connection tidbit! Interesting!

I wasn't aware of the Frank Murphy Museum. Have you been?

I visited the museum's web site and got a glimpse of its contents, but only a glimpse.
