Regarding the million-coin display of silver dollars at the 1962 Seattle World's Fair,
Web site visitor Bob Buch writes:
Google lead me to your article about the silver dollar display (here). Walt Behlen was a first cousin of my mother, so our parents took us to see the exhibit. I have one of the original tri-fold brochures from the display, and have attached a PDF that I file made from it. It has some additional details you might find useful if the subject comes up again
What a great piece of numismatic ephemera! This is just the sort of item I love to collect. While once commonplace, today it is quite rare to find and indeed contains some great information not to be found elsewhere. Here are some images.
I knew there were souvenir medals for the exposition, but was unaware they mentioned the silver dollar exhibit. Does anyone have one of these medals? How about a silver dollar traceable to the exhibit?
