Regarding Dick Johnson's piece on Franklin Mint medals, Greg Adams writes:
He mentions 'A Boy Scout medal series by Norman Rockwell sells at the greatest premium over original cost to my knowledge.' I suggest Dick take a look at the Silver and Bronze Girl Scout set (also with Rockwell images) that were issued a few years after the Boy Scout set. They are about 10 times rarer than the Boy Scout set, but still occasionally show up on eBay and sell for substantially more.
Greg provided links to pages at the Franklin Mint web site maintained by dealers Bob Sheraga and Earl Morris. Thanks!
