I have a Tiffany silver medal of the Commercial Tercentenary of New York 1614 - 1914. It has a struck plate naming W.W.C. Wilson. Of course, he is a famous early Canadian numismatist. Would he have purchased the medal (as I think that was possible), or would some person on the committee have seen that he was awarded the medal? If any of our readers might be able to answer I would be most appreciative.
Good question. Can anyone help?
