<font size=3><b>Not often does your personal numismatic Holy Grail drop into your lap but it just happened to me. 7 years ago I bid too low on a bronze Italian medal struck for the 1893 Columbian Exposition (Eglit 107). After missing out on my first purchase attempt I have been looking for one ever since. Then last week I stumbled across this Eglit 106 up for auction. (The 107 is a reduced version of the 106). I never dreamed that an Eglit 106 would come up for sale so this time it had to be mine! And so here it is. <p><p><img src=http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/1/0/2/4/5/7/0/webimg/618513878_o.jpg><p><img src=http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/1/0/2/4/5/7/0/webimg/618513906_o.jpg><p><p> Eglit 106—1893 Columbian Exposition Size: 102mm, Weight 467 grams Material: Bronze Designed: Lodovico Pogliaghi Engraver: Modello A.
