Concordant. The relationship of a medal's reverse to its obverse, where the reverse is the back of what the
obverse would be, as if the medal were sculpture in-the-round. A recent example is a Lincoln Medal for the Lincoln Memorial University by Albert

Book lovers should be word lovers as well.

Or if you would like a printed copy of the complete Encyclopedia, it is available. There are 1,854 terms, on 678 pages, in The
Encyclopedia of Coin and Medal Technology. Even running two a week would require more than 19 years to publish them all. If you would like an
advance draft of this vital reference work it may be obtained from the author for your check of $50 sent postpaid. Dick Johnson, 139 Thompson Drive,
