I enjoyed the article in the Sept. 16, 2012 issue of The E-Sylum on the Sioux City Corn Palace Medals. I was unaware this piece was struck by the U.S. Mint. I thought your readers might like to see the reverse of this medal so I have included a scan. These Sioux City Corn Palace medals (issued 1887-1891) are listed in the book, Standard Catalog of United States Tokens by Russell Rulau. He noted that all are holed and were apparently issued to be suspended from badges. I have also sent scans of one unholed piece from the Sioux City Corn Palace. It is from 1891 and unlisted by Rulau.

I purchased the attached 1889 Sioux City Corn Palace medal (presumed unlisted so called dollar) in the recent Hot August Auction by Holabird & Kagin.
It appears to be white metal, 36.5mm, and weighs 15 grams. It does not have any edge markings.
Thanks, folks! You never know what readers can put their hands on short notice. Interesting souvenirs.
