My Research Confirmed in Frank Gasparro's Biography

| DrDarryl

Back story: In 2013, I began researching the President Eisenhower Appreciation Medals . My primary research source were records held by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). My findings included mintage, designers, purpose, destruction inventory, and cataloging the series for the first time. In 2015, I update my numismatic research findings with additional Eisenhower findings and added the Kennedy Appreciation medals to this previously undocumented US Mint medal series.I've been sitting on some of my numismatic research finds relating to the Presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy Appreciation Medals. I've attached images of Frank Gasparro's biography that was submitted as a congressional record during his 1965 confirmation as Chief Sculptor and Engraver of the US Mint.

Really? ... That Much for a Copy of My Out of Print Book

Exonumia | DrDarryl

I'm writing a 3rd book relating to "POTUS sGm" (aka Eisenhower Appreciation medals, Kennedy Appreciation medal). I found it amusing as I looked at the high listed price on two Amazon locations (prices shown are in US dollars) for the first book on these "newly discovered" US Mint medals. The first two books on these medals can be seen at http://www.potus-sgm.com/
