Dick Grinolds submitted these Mother-themed medals. Thanks. Happy Mother's Day, Moms! -Editor
I noticed the brief mention of Mother's Day in the May 5, 2019 E-Sylum -- here are a couple of medals close to or spot on the
1. Motherhood -- Victor David Brenner's contribution to the first private collector medal series in America, The Circle Of Friends Of The
Medallion, Issue #4 struck by Joseph K. Davison & Son of Philadelphia.
2. Mother's Day (Dia Da Mae in Portuguese) -- a huge 99mm bronze medal by Cabral Antunes with a mother and child on the obverse and a verse on
the reverse which does not Google translate very well.
Of course here in The Land Of 10,000 Lakes, Mother's Day is also known as "the day after fishing opener...".
