Concerning last week's discussion of researching medal design copyrights, Kay O. Freeman writes:
Actually, there are many Design patents for medals, and they can be easily found thru Google patents advanced search online. Trademarks are there too. A different site has copyrights online, but only from 1978. I use the Google Design patents all the time - for things other than medals - back into the 19th centurry. The original drawings and descriptions are there online. Make sure to look at bottom of results page to see continuation of results!
