**Coin Show Treasure**

Medals-So-Called Dollars | Kepi

Last weekend I was happy to find myself in Las Vegas attending a coin show that I has been looking forward to for quite sometime. The Las Vegas Numismatic Society's 56th Coin Show. It was a smaller venue about 100 vendors, just right for me! There was so much to see and lots of variety. Coins, currency, commemorative's, medals, gold, silver, books, supply's... they had it all! I went with a list and a budget in mind and manged to stick to it pretty good. I did find this Medal from a dealer way in the back corner and thought it would make a nice addition to my collection. It's a "So-Called Dollar" from the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition (Montana). San Francisco. Made of bronze, weight of 32.02 gm. and is 32 mm. It was for the State Dollar Fund of Montana. The obverse shows Winged Victory standing on the prow of a ship holding a laurel wreath out before her. There are exposition buildings, a riverboat and hills in the background. The reverse depicts a Montana scene with mountains, a stream, mining tools and a rising sun. Happy with this great find, I was off to the next vendors table where who knows what I might find! Buffalo Nickels perhaps...??? But that's the next blog... ; ) haha Hope you enjoyed my blog. All comments are welcomed.
