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.
This is a fantastic set for the United States Civil War 1861-1865. Yes, it was fought about slavery and yes, there are some remnants of the old South still around. But please remember it was a historical event in a historic time and in this case the good guys won. As the reverse of each medallion states in large letters ‘Abolition of Slavery’. This set is very special We know you will enjoy it. The South wanted slavery and so they seceded from the North. It was a bloody war of brother against brother. It changed much but also left many with scars. This set is magnificent! Five crownsized medallions that have been gold plated with several surprises. On the reverse of each medal there is a facing portrait of Abraham Lincoln. He fought for peace and died for peace. You have full colour renditions of battles, soldier fighting soldier, both flags going into battle. On one you have a most moving portrait of Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant. The collection comes in a handsome metal case where you can vary the thickness of the inner display by just removing some of the padding. It is a fantastic set from the packaging on up wards. It’s beautiful and the entire package of five medallions and the metal display case is just £19.50!
