Please President Eisenhower...May I have one?

Exonumia | DrDarryl

More research clarification for my in-progress book.

Image is a partial article clipping I just had to share.

Must have been a real pleasure to receive one from President Eisenhower himself !!


The Hawaii version video.
I included images of the "Provenance Memo" and "Hawaii Payment Voucher". Key documents to organize and form the POTUS sGm series.

Thanks for the info.

Eisenhower loved to give out medals as souviners of his many visits. Hard to believe the man wasn't a numismatist.

He was a collector! He donated his collection to the Smithsonian. Here is a link to my previous blog entry. https://www.money.org/collector/drdarryl/blog/president-eisenhower-s-personal-coin-collection

I would have loved to receive one of those medals direct from the mans hand. Thanks!

Interesting! He was a great man. It would have been an honor to receive one of them from him. Do you know how much they sell for today? Thanks for sharing!

I'd be very interested in your book. Medallic portraits of Ike? I wrote an article on medallic portraits of Thomas Jefferson. Not published yet.
