Walking recently down the main street of Warrenton, VA (a beautiful little town), I came across a storefront advertising a "bicenquinquagenary" celebration. How many years does that mouthful of a word represent? In numismatics we often encounter medals commemorating the centennial or bicentennial of an event (100 and 200 years, respectively). Are there any medals for a bicenquinquagenary celebration?
