Presidential and Inaugural

Strictly presidential so called dollar size medals like those shown below(including inaugural medals) were not included in HK. Presidential pieces often WERE included if one side of the medal seemed to commemorate something other than the president being depicted. There are many, many examples throughout HK (HK12, HK30, HK32a, HK39, HK127, HK136, HK275...etc..etc). At the time of HKs publication, many presidential so called dollar sized medals and tokens had already been published/cataloged elsewhere, the most obvious example being "Medallic Portraits of Washington" by William Baker (Republished and updated in 1999 by Russell Rulau and George Fuld). It would have been mostly redundant and pointless for the authors of HK to have included ALL presidential so called dollar size medals.
