MEDALLIC ARTS "RELIGIONS OF THE WORLD" MEDAL SERIES SOUGHT FOR RESEARCH

Dick Johnson writes: "For a research project on the patinas of art medals, the former foreman of the finishing department at Medallic Art Company for nearly two decades has agreed to be interviewed. He was the one who created the many patinas to be put on selected art medals, including The Society of Medalists issues, for art medals made by this firm in the 1950s thru 1970s. He is going to reveal how these patinas, and previous Society issues, were created. We have a complete set to show him to ascertain these patinas. In addition, he created all the patinas for the Presidential Art Medal series, The Great Religions of the World, issued 1971-1973 all by sculptor Ralph J. Menconi and struck by Medallic Art Company. Each of the 25 medals in the series had a different color patina. But it appears most people ordered only their own religion; we have been unable to locate a complete 25-medal set. We need to borrow (or purchase, if necessary) a complete set of these 25 medals. Or if the owner would like to bring these to the interview (in southern Connecticut) they would never be out of sight (and he or she could learn of this important information). The interview is scheduled to take place Friday afternoon, October 25, 2002. E-Sylum readers often perform miracles in locating unusual numismatic items. I hope someone can help in this very important research project. Please contact me at: dick.johnson@snet.net or call (860) 567-0431 day or night."
