COINS ON TV: OVAL OFFICE NUMISMATIC DISPLAY

Regarding Chick Ambrass' query about what looks like a
Display of coins or medals on the set of the TV show
"Commander in Chief", Steve Woodland writes: "On this one
I am really guessing, but the Franklin Mint issued a
12-coin set in a wooden frame called "Norman Rockwell's
Spirit of Scouting". It featured twelve silver proof-quality
medals about 1.5 inches in diameter.  To me, this sounds
more like something a president would have on the walls
of the oval office, rather than Morgan dollars (What is
more American than Norman Rockwell and the Boy Scouts?
But what do I know about US presidents, I'm a Canadian)."

[I wouldn't mind contacting the producers of the show
to ask them, but was stymied by the show's official web
site.  An old-fashioned phone call might do the trick,
if anyone's curious enough to try. -Editor]
