New Medals By Jeanne Stevens-Sollman
Sculptor Jeanne Stevens-Sollman of Centre County, Pennsylvania served on the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee. An E-Sylum reader, I recently corresponded with her and learned about her two newest medals.
Proceeds of the Zelensky medal will go to Ukrainian refugees.

Carnegie Museum Coin Sales Question
Earlier this month Kavan Ratnatunga
"Do you know the Auction at which the Ceylon Coffee tokens that had been gifted to Carnegie Museum were sold back in 1976?"
I recalled that there were multiple sales (four, I think) in New York, London and somewhere else. I suspected the Ceylon tokens were in a SPINK sale.
"Spink Auction 30 looked promising, however, Spink has sent me an image showing that Auction 30 has no Ceylon Coffee tokens, so it must be one of the other auctions."
Can anyone help? I lived through the deaccession nightmare after the Carnegie Museum of Natural History decided to sell its coin collection. I was a college student in Pittsburgh at the time and connected with members of the Western Pennsylvania Numismatic Society and the Historical Society of Western Pennsylvania to fight the sale. I gathered petition signatures, wrote Letters to the Editor, attended meetings, etc. In the end the Clapp Large Cent collection was salvaged but most of the rest of the museum holdings were sold. I didn't save a set of the sale catalogs (shame on me)!
So... can anyone list the sales for us? And which one had the Ceylon tokens? Thanks.
