The E-Sylum:  Volume 3, Number 32, August 6, 2000, Article 6

LET'S SEE THEM TRY TO SLAB THAT! 

   Dick Johnson writes: "Please! No more of those awful definitions 
   of coin, medal, token, jeton. Namely: 

    MEDAL:  CoinNews (UK) define the term in their 2000 
      Yearbook as "A piece of metal bearing devices or given as 
      an award. 

   This is atrocious!  Half the objects made in the last 150 years 
   by hundreds of metalworkers worldwide, like Scovill (brass 
   manufacturer, Waterbury) -- including nail-heads, lady's 
   compact covers to manhole covers -- would fit this definition."
