Constitutional Centennial Philadelphia 1887 President Washington Medal

268a) Unlisted in Rulau/Fuld, but with a similar obverse design to Douglas 44. In the November 2019 Stacks Baker auction there were four of these that sold, all in white metal. Two were holed and two were un-holed. But looking through old catalogs, I only found two of these, both also in white metal and both holed. The two un-holed examples from the Stacks auction are the only ones I have seen un-holed. With so many of these showing up at one auction, one might conclude that these pieces are not very rare, however I found only two, and it is also unlisted in Rulau/Fuld/Baker. So, for me, Rare to Very Rare holed and Very Rare to Extremely Rare un-holed. White metal, 32.9mm. Image courtesy of Stacks from November 2019 lot#20731 at Stack’s Bowers Galleries

Constitutional Centennial Philadelphia PA Liberty Bell 1887 Medal

270c) Another medal commemorating the 100 year anniversary of the surrender at Yorktown. Rulau/Fuld Baker 454. Baker describes this piece as being 32 mm in diameter which is in error. Johnson and Jensen sale #25 lot#325(July 1983) described a bronze piece as 33.2mm. A white metal piece that I have measures 33mm exactly. The beautiful silver example shown here from Stacks November 2019 auction(lot#20689) was described as 33mm in diameter. I did not tally this piece because initially I thought it too small to include as a so called dollar. Probably extremely rare in silver, rare to vary rare in bronze or white metal. Silver, 33mm.

In the last section of HK(Section C Page 169), HK-892, HK-901, and HK-910 are medals that were given to war veterans for their service. All three are found without loops, holes, or hangers, although HK-901 and HK-910 are usually found with hangers and loops. I have been reluctant to include any medals on this website as "so called dollars" whose main purpose was to be given to someone for personal accomplishment, but being that HK included these three, I have decided to also include others. I still exclude any medals with the word "Award" in it's inscription. The criteria here is that they be of so called dollar size, are found un-looped or un-holed, and were made prior to 1960. There actually do not appear to be that many that fit these criteria. Other medals listed above on this page could have also been been issued as service medals with attached hangers etc., but my guess is that their main purpose was more as a souvenir commemorative than a service medal. I have placed all varieties of HK-892 here just for the sake of keeping them all together.


295) "U.S. Naval Campaign West Indies 1898", "William Sampson", "Commander In Chief", "Santiago De Cuba July 3.". Often found as a military participants medal with loop and hanger. There are other varieties that have "San Juan P.R", "Guantanamo", "Matanzas", and possibly others in place of "Santiago De Cuba". These latter varieties are rarer and appear to always come looped with hangers, and often with a participant name engraved on the edge. Rare. Bronze, 38.2mm.
