                      Colonial Coin Replica Medal

1928 Medal Replica of 1776 Massachusetts Colonial Coin   Colonial Coin Replica by First National Bank


1928 National Currency / Colonial Coin Medal.  Obverse a class Colonial image (slightly modified) of the rare Massachusetts LIBERTY AND VIRTUE  pattern copper dated 1776.  The Reverse has a multi-line inscription: "September 4, 1928 One of Thirty Six Replicas of Early American Coins Used in Banking Screen. Central Office, 1500 Walnut Street, The First National Bank of Philadelphia, Charter No. 1."

                   $125                        A medal with cross-over interest for collectors of Colonial Coins, Medals, and National Currency.  The legend presents a bit of an enigma: Was this one of 36 different colonial designs proposed, or was it a total of 36 medals struck of this 1 design?  So seldom seen, with no other similar Colonial known by this bank, I believe it to be the latter.  Extremely Fine.

The U.S. Navy's first nuclear-powered submarine was authorized by Congress in July 1951. Admiral Hyman G. Rickover, "Father of the Nuclear Navy", planned and personally supervised its construction.  On 12 December 1951, the Department of the Navy announced that the new vessel would carry the hull number SSN-571 and would be named Nautilus - making it the fourth U.S. Navy vessel officially so named.
On 14 June 1952, Nautilus's keel was laid at General Dynamics' Electric Boat Division in Groton, Connecticut by President Harry S. Truman.  On 21 January 1954, she was christened by First Lady Mamie Eisenhower, wife of Truman's successor, President Dwight D. Eisenhower, and was launched into Connecticut's Thames River.  Nautilus was commissioned on 30 September 1954 under the command of Commander Eugene P. Wilkinson, U.S.N.

Reverse of McKinley Inaugural Badge

The McKinley Inaugural Badge

Dusterberg, in his Official Inaugural Medals, wrote: "The 1897 committee preparing for the installation of William McKinley produced a badge of superior quality.  It includes a finely executed medal that attaches to the rest of the device by a clasp.  When detached from the badge, only an indentation in the upper rim of the medal reveals it was intended for use in that manner."
