Déjà Vu... ???

Medals | Kepi

You may remember back in August seeing a similar blog by me.   You're probably thinking  " Oh brother...Kepi's  gone nuts!  She already put this Medal up"...  If you look closely though you'll see that this is a different  "Life and Death" Medal.  This one graded higher at PCGS  SP 66.   c.1950  by Cecil Howard,  Sculptor.  To date there are only 2 graded in existence and even though I wasn't  looking for the second  one,  I found it at auction and won it far below what it should have gone for.  So I must say I'm really excited to show you my 2 of 2 "Life and Death" Medal's.    I like to check out the smaller coin auction sites...you never know when you might find a "sleeper", as I believe most bidders were looking at the larger coin auctions going on like The Money Show in Denver and the Pre-Long Beach Show among others.

Great find! If you don't mind, what small sites do you recommend? And, when you say only two graded in existence and you weren't looking for the second one, does that mean there are only two and you have both, or only two have been graded ever, although there may be more out there, and you have both, or something else? :)

Kepi, You took the words out of my mouth. And we may all be nuts to some degree on this site. Great find! Thanks for posting it with photos.

Another great pick-up Kepi! Very well done. My coin dealer always tells me, as he's trying to sell me something, "If it's worth owning one it's worth having two!" Thanks for sharing.

Very nice. Great pick up. I can't think of a better medal with a better message for all time. Two are always better than three. Mike
