Shhhh…Sleeper Coin At RHM Website…Mintage 50 and Still Available

Lets see how many of you are paying attention and reading my blog. Here is a freebie. And it’s still available.

RHM database incorrectly state bronze mintage of 500. RHM website indicates bronze mintage of 50.

RHM database collaborates with the mintage of 50 since the same medal in silver has a mintage of 30….

The mintage or 50 and 30 is reasonable, while the mintage of 500 and 30 is off. Besides, the RHM website states its a limited mintage (term not used with strikings of 500).

The design is a modern replication of 2TE-1 (John T. Waterhouse early token).

1942 V for Victory Remember Pearl Harbor


M&R performed a disservice by not listing this medal.

In 1942, George J. Reid (medal designer/minter) presented a specimen to First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt. It currently resides as a permanent part of the FDR Presidential Library and Museum.

This just acquired specimen for my collection that out grades the FDR specimen.
