NYC Transit Token

| Mike

These were made to get from one place to another. You can see the N then the cut out of the Y and then the letter C. The mintage was 58 million. There was an anniversary token made solid with the impression of a train. That was in the 1970's. When they changed to the metro card they sold these and jewelry stores made a bracelet out of them. Strange but true. As the years went on they did get bigger in size. I wrote this because someone wrote in a blog he posted one. Sorry none were there. No mistake. He clearly states it .

Coin., a commemorative of the bloodiest day in American history . I did not load the reverse. As you know I cannot load coins this is a test if it works there's no guarantee it will work again this is a second try. The reverse is the famous Burnside Bridge. There were heavy losses on both sides. The tree next to the Bridge I stood next to. In the peaceful setting you can here the soldiers screaming.. I could not load tags it was made in 1937 as a commemorative it's a 50 cent piece it was the first major buy. I made but that was in the 1990's. Not today's prices. I wish in could load the reverse but no luck This is my second try. Here we go . Made in Philadelphia. Thanks Mike Have a great day.could not load reverse. Sorry.

Medal of My Two Favorite People in World Affairs

| Mike

I was looking for a medal of these two great men on two different medals. I was on eBay when I came across the both of them on one medal was I excited!. Both on one. Now it's old and I'm having a hard time making out the manufacturer. I will and I will add it. It has to be held to see the beauty. The relief is very high probably the highest I've seen. The medal was made by the Medallic Art Co. N.Y.It's made of bronze. I did call the company they are still in business and are in the process of the mintage and if any are left there not sure of the price today.

World Cup Coin 2014

| Mike

This is the reverse a beautiful coin. It was made in France and has a very big curve on it. Like our baseball coin. It is ten Euro's the mintage was ten thousand and sold out. It was made in 2014. And then shipped to Brazil! The green you see is a reflection there is no toning on this coin. It's a proof69 deep Cameo.

Civil War Token

| Mike

There are alot of scratches on the holder. Basically because I looked at it alot. There is more red than brown. If you could hold it you would see it. If I put too much light on it you would not see the color this good. Not one of my better shots. People used these to exchange for goods and services. During a terrible war. For a good reason!
