bill Posted May 31, 2006 Report Share Posted May 31, 2006 A recent purchase, brass so-called dollar, although not aluminum. The medal is known in aluminum, but I have yet to encounter one. I passed on silver pieces several times and finally broke down and bought one in brass. I guess living so close to SF and having walked part of California Street was just too much of an attraction. I also bid on one suspended from a brass, SOUVENIR pinback bar, but I was sniped in the final 5 seconds. Oh well. Hibler and Kappen could find no information about who issued the medal or why (for profit or to raise funds for the relief effort). The images on both sides correspond to popular photographs made in the days following the earthquake and fire. Upgraded: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
