Click on images for enlargement

1898 Sesqui-Centennial of Reading Pa with "Souvenir" top bar and R/W/B ribbon. I have never seen one of these un-holed. Not in HK. Medal drop is 35.1mm. White metal.

1937 Golden Gate Bridge Fiesta. For an interesting read about this event Click Here. Not in HK and probably does not exist without loops. Reverse is very similar to the Battle of Vera Cruz medal #288. Gilt brass drop is 36.2mm.

New York Discovery of America 400th anniversary badge with eagle top bar and R/W/B ribbon. Eglit 221. Aluminum. Not found in HK but the reverse is the same as HK232. Medal is 38.2mm.

Ohio Valley and Central States Centennial Exposition held in Cincinnati in 1888. HK 147 with an eagle attachment. This so called dollar is not very easy to come by, holed or un-holed. White metal, 37.7mm

New York State fair held in Syracuse, New York in 1910. Probably does not come without loops. Gilt brass, 36.1mm

Portola Festival held in San Francisco in 1909 with bear "souvenir" top bar. Same celebration as HK389. Probably does not exist without loops(unless of course they were removed). Reverse is very similar to the Battle of Vera Cruz medal #288. Gilt brass, 36.1mm

New York Hudson Fulton celebration in 1909. With B/W/Y ribbon and top "New York" pin bar. Medal drop is the same as HK 382. I have also seen these described as having a R/W/B ribbon attachment. One of the more attractive so called dollars. White Metal, 38.1mm

Hamden County Memorial Bridge Dedication 1922. Same as HK 670 with R/W/B ribbon and pin attachment. Looking through old catalogs, I only found 2 other HK 670s, both of which had the fob loop. It may that they only come with loop or loop removed. Gilt, 38.9mm

Appalachian Exposition held in Knoxville, Tennessee in 1911 with an attached "Souvenir" top bar. I have seen two other of these, both without loops, but in both cases it is likely that the loops had been removed(I could not inspect them). There were three related expositions held in 1910, 1911, and 1913. None of these expos are represented in HK. Bronze, 36.1mm

Fiftieth Anniversary of Lynn, Massachusetts 1900, by Schwaab Milwaukee, with "Souvenir" top pin bar. Probably does not come un-looped. Gilt brass, 35.9mm

Boston Old Home Week 1907 with rabbit ear loops and "Souvenir" top pin bar showing a pot of beans and clasped hands. For an interesting read about how Boston became known as Bean Town Click Here. Gilt, 36.2mm

1909 Fitchburg, Massachusetts 150th Anniversary medal with top loop and R/W/B tied on ribbon. Probably all come with a loop. Silver plate, 38.5mm

Another Massachusetts medal, this one with loop and attached blue ribbon(darker in color than my image) and top pin bar. Hopkinton, Mass. 1915 200th Anniversary. "Dieges & Clust" in tiny lettering at the bottom. Bronze. The medal drop is 34.1mm

New York Day Gettysburg Celebration July 1893 with red, white, and blue ribbon and medal showing monument and High Water Mark. Image courtesy of Kevin Himber. Aluminum medal drop is 37.2mm
