156) Norwalk Memorial. Baker 369. Issued by Issac F. Wood. Found in silver, copper/bronze, and white metal.

I am not aware of any celebration attached to this medal. Same nicely executed Washington military bust by Key used on HK30, HK39, and HK70b. Rare in white metal. Rare in bronze/copper.

159) A second Dauphin County piece. Found in white metal, bronze and silver. Stacks sold two of these in silver, one in August of 2015 and a different one in March 2016. These were the first two that I had known of in silver. I found none in all of the old sales catalogs that I looked through, including all Presidential Coin and Antique Co sales, all Charles Kirtley sales, and many others. The white metal and bronze examples have "P.L. Rider Phila" in tiny lettering on the narrow raised area just below the scene with the small man with a pick axe. That lettering is missing on the silver pieces. It was suggested by Stacks that the silver pieces may have been made at the US mint, and the white metal and bronze pieces outside of the mint by a private minter. Rare in white metal and found holed maybe half the time. Extremely Rare in silver or bronze. White metal, 38.1mm.

It can however have the words "Presented"(HK 1 has this), "Participation", and/or "Service" as long as it is not military. Anyway, this has all three!, but neither of the former, thus I included it.
