QUERY: PITTSBURG AND MEXICAN TIN MINING COMPANY MEDAL

Ed Krivoniak writes:

I am finishing up an article on the Pittsburg and Mexican Tin Mining Company and medal. I just have to footnote it before I send it off. The speech was delivered at the September meeting of the Sphinx Society and was very well received. I have located six specimens of the medal in Pittsburgh and have been wondering if there is any way to find out about others around the world. Do you think The E-Sylum readership can help?

This medal has been catalogued as HK-149 in the Hibbler-Kappen So-Called Dollars book, with a note that "Extensive research develops little information on this medal." It is listed as "Extremely rare".

So - have any of our readers seen examples of this medal? Has an example appeared in an auction or fixed price listing? Thanks. -Editor
