Category:  Token & Medals
Last Modified:  2/13/2018
Set Description
SO-CALLED DOLLARS AS LISTED IN THE HIBLER & KAPPEN REFERENCE BOOK, AND A FEW OTHER MEDALS, THAT I HAVE PURCHASED AND/OR HAD GRADED BY NGC.

Set Goals
COLLECTING THESE MEDALS THAT ARE A PART OF AMERICAN HISTORY IS FUN AND EDUCATIONAL. I ALSO ENJOY THESE BECAUSE MANY OF THESE MEDALS ARE VERY RARE IF NOT UNIQUE. SEE MY HK-11E THAT IS THE ONLY EXAMPLE GRADED BY NGC TO DATE, AND MY HK-293 THAT IS THE FINEST OF ONLY TWO GRADED BY NGC TO DATE AS EXAMPLES.
