Query: Warren Harding Inaugural Medal
"I would like to know something about the history of this and the value."
Well, it's clearly associated with the inauguration of President Warren Harding in 1921. The hole at the top indicates it was meant to be worn by attendees and supporters of the President. The outer frame has the imprint of Schwaab token and medal company of Milwaukee.
I'm unfamiliar with these or their value. Can anyone help?

Murdoch Mysteries Coins
Alan Roy writes:
"Murdoch Mysteries is a popular Canadian TV show about a police detective who solves murders in early early twentieth-century Toronto. Episodes frequently include famous historical characters (Nikola Tesla, Harley & Davison, Al Jolson, and Buffalo Bill Cody, for example) or references to today's technology.
In last Monday's episode, "Ballad of Gentleman Jones", hobo nickels feature prominently in the murder of a number of vagrants. Several of these hobo nickels are shown on screen but don't appear to be real examples.
Screen captures are provided to show closer looks at one of the hobo nickels found on a victim's body, and a tray of them that an antique dealer shows to Detective Murdoch during his investigation."
Thank you - I wasn't familiar with this show.
