    What seems to be the problem?

    FYI: I only collect naturally toned coins with original surfaces and nothing else, trust me nothing else!
    OK with one exception!

    @Coinstartled How much did you bid? Do you think it's too high?

    I did bid. Just not enough.

    When your 'want' and 'resources' are sufficient, your bid will be successful.... ;) Cheers, RickO

    There is an AU 55 on eBay now for $110 or best offer and some others for varying prices.

    Thx for highlighting this medal that I had never seen before. Now I want one, so maybe we'll bid against each other some day! :D

    12 at least on ebay currently.


    No one has ever had a plan to lose money in numismatics, monies lost is a result of not having a plan.

    The token is not rare.

    Poor Dana Bickford never grasped why it was an impractical idea.

    This one is an MS-64, which probably would not be good enough for you. I found it at a FUN show in fairly short order.

    Neither did some people in the Federal Government when they tried to push the Stella or $4 gold.

    The only support in government for any of Hubbell's "ideas" came from Rep. Stephens. Everyone at the Mint and Treasury knew the ideas were absurd.
