1. The Crystal Palace in London, Destroyed 1936 by fire. 2. The Sesquicentennial Expo. Philadelphia. 3. $50 with some being Octagonal. 4. The 1893 Columbian Expo. Was the first to feature elongated coins, but in video # 4 you make it sound like that was not a world fair. Wiki says it was a world fair, so I'm sticking to that answer. 5. The Theme of Milan, Italy is Feeding the planet, Energy for life.
