Regarding numismatic literature with a coin or medal mounted, I have a book entitled "Carnival Panorama, New Orleans Mardi Gras Medals and Krewes 1884-1965" by Jay Guren and Richard Ugan. It was published by Anderson Publications, New Orleans, 1966. The front cover of the book has a 1 5/8" round opening, and mounted on the inside front page (showing through the opening in the front cover) is a golden aluminum medal. It is the 1966 New Orleans Carnival Parade Schedule Medal and was available exclusively to purchasers of the book.
Thanks! There are a number of books with a similar theme, but I don't recall seeing this one before.
