QUERY: WHO MADE THE MASTERS TOURNAMENT MEDALS?

Joe Boling writes:

Regarding the maker of the 1940 Masters medal, there is a logo next to the word "sterling" at the bottom of the reverse - whose is it?

I noticed that mark, too, but didn't recognize it. OK, maybe I just couldn't read it. Here's a closeup at the highest resolution I've got. Does anyone recognize it? -Editor

Regarding the article about counterfeiting British one pound coins, Joe has this to say about the article's statement that 'The blanks are squeezed at around 40psi':

Pound coins struck at 40psi? Maybe if they were chocolate coins. I went back to the original article, and sure enough, it said 40psi there, too. I wonder if it was supposed to say 40,000?
