United States of America, Rugged American Collection
A friend of ours was cleaning out one of his warehouses and came across a quantity of this important collection. It was issued by the Canadian company ‘Husky Self Service Stations’ in 1970. They were struck by the famous, but no longer making coins, Franklin Mint. Each copper medallion depicts a famous figure from the old West and the collection comes with a booklet telling you who each one is and what they did. Plus a presentation card for displaying the whole collection. Each medallion is still in the original cellophane envelope that it was issued in. You get an eight-page information booklet which not only tells you about the person on the medallion but also an image of how they looked. Plus, a 4-page leaflet telling you about the issue of these medallions. Finally, a full-colour cardboard display card to mount and show off the entire collection of 13 pieces. The ‘cowboys’ depicted are Buffalo Bill Cody, Wild Bill Hickok, Wyatt Earp, Kit Carson, Bat Masterson, Meriwether Lewis, and William Clark. The Native Americans depicted are Geronimo, Chief Joseph, Sitting Bull, Black Hawk, Sacajawea, and Crazy Horse. There are a total of 13 different bronze medallions all in pristine, unopened, new condition. And remember this set is 47 years old! We offer the complete set with a display card and information booklet for only £24.50! But there is a limit of 2 sets per order. After all, at this price, they are a gift and they make great gifts! Don’t miss out on this one.
