I’ve been busy with research of the POTUS sGm series. Here is the Hawaii medal that was recently graded/encapsulated by NGC. I thank NGC for the free pedigree label (my name) on the slabs in my research collection!
Somewhat related to the Hawaiiana numismatics (1960 Eisenhower Hawaii visit medal). I re-used my YouTube video that presents my research finding for the Hawaii visit model (near the bottom of the POTUS sGm webpage).
During the past weeks my career has been keeping me busy (4 projects, 2 reviews, mentor sponsorship, overtime, lunch time presentation, performance reviews, etc…).
I’ve have five displays cases reserved for an upcoming coin show and have been finalizing its design.
The last snippet pretty much reveals the significance of my research.
If you’ve been keeping up with the US Mint and the 2014 Kennedy issues it’s a hot numismatic topic.
I’ve added information that is backed-up by my background research on the President John F. Kennedy Appreciation Medal (previously discussed in this blog as an off tangent topic) to the Kennedy half dollar.
Whom ever did the original research dropped the ball on Frank Gaspparo’s experience on the Presidential Seal and his FG initials placement on the Kennedy Appreciation Medal. I’ve also added images of the President John F. Kennedy Appreciation Medal in my collection.
I developed a new series for US numismatics that will attract main stream collectors and US history buffs: President of the United States of America (POTUS) Appreciation Medals
Original impetus was the lack of information on Medcalf & Russell 2M-94.
Now a very unique US numismatic series.
Information is not a regurgitation or repackaging of previously documented information and is original research (adds new information to the body of numismatic knowledge, not simply reporting already known information as a term paper would).
New blog created to pursue this interest. Read the home page for specific about the POTUS Appreciation Medals.
