FEATURED WEB PAGE: 1933 HUEY LONG WASHROOM WARRIOR MEDAL

This week's featured web page is the 1933 satirical Huey
"Kingfish" Long "Washroom Warrior" medal from the Wayne
Homren consignment in the American Numismatic Rarities
Lake Michigan & Springdale Collection sale in June 2006.

Shaped like a toilet seat for good reason, see below.
Obverse with fist and jaw caricature, MCMXXXIII and PUBLICO
CONSILIO PRO RE IN CAMERA GESTA around, BY / PUBLIC ACCLAIM /
FOR A DEED / DONE IN PRIVATE / SANDS POINT / AUGUST 26 /
1933 on seven lines on reverse with Medallic Art's logo
below.

[I hated parting with this one but perhaps I'll snag another
example for my collection someday.  The catalog description
is in error when it places the location of the incident in
Sands Point, Louisiana.  I believe the incident occurred
in Sands Point, Long island.  -Editor]
