U.S. COLLECTOR DONATES RARE SENIOR CUP MEDALS

The UK's Romford Recorder reports that "The Essex County FA
have a fantastic piece of historical football memorabilia for
the Association archive after a donation from an American coin
collector.

Howard Strong's two 19th century Senior Cup medals from 1889
and 1892 feature in the latest edition of ECFA Magazine and
the Washington State resident was so pleased to make contact
with the Essex County FA recently that he has asked for the
oldest medal to be put on display in the county's trophy cabinet."

"Both of Strong's medals feature Vaughtons of Birmingham on the
box and the famous Midland silverware company later replaced the
old FA Cup after it was stolen from Aston Villa in 1895.

Vaughtons sold the new trophy to The FA for ?25 and Birmingham
City owner, David Gold, bought it at auction for ?475,000 last
year."
