As you've been publishing so much great stuff on medals, I'd like to ask permission to copy and re-publish the occasional article on medals in our monthly newsletter (actually the monthly medal meeting reminder) of the Southern California Orders & Medals Society. We're a small, but old...now over fifty years in existence...group who have been meeting regularly each month in the Los Angeles area (we think possibly longer than any other medal society) to talk about and exhibit worldwide Orders, Decorations & Medals...ODMs, i.e., mostly portable (wearable) medals, and of those mostly military, but increasingly table medals too as we seek new members to keep the group viable in the internet age and for reasons of attrition.
We always meet on the last Sunday of each month from 12 noon to about 3 or 4pm at an attractive venue at a golf country club in a Los Angeles area suburb and everyone has a fine time.
I'd like extend an invitation on our behalf to any Los Angeles area medal collector who might like to attend a meeting to check out our activities (several drive from San Diego each month and have doing so for many years). All we ask is that a guest contact us first so we know who's walking in the door and they can do that by emailing me at
Clubs are always welcome to republish E-Sylum material with attribution, such as "from the November 18, 2012 issue of The E-Sylum, a weekly newsletter published by the Numismatic Bibliomania Society (www.coinbooks.org)".
Sounds like a fun club - I've never lived in a town with a club dedicated to Orders & Medals.
E-Sylum are encouraged to visit.
