It's non-numismatic, but still fun. Tom Sheehan forwarded this wine label with a coin theme. He writes: "It's a Napa wine found in Nantucket."
In slightly more numismatic tangent, this week I came across this offering from Pacific Book Auction Galleries: a wooden humidor with medals mounted on top. Click the image to see a full-size version on our Flickr archive. Most are from California events as far back as 1908 and 1915. Is anyone familiar with these medals?
