New Discoveries


When I first began this collection in 2004, and now this catalog, I had no idea how
much material there was or that much of it was simply not listed
anywhere. And I am still 'discovering' new items. On this page I will list any items
I obtain for my collection or images that are sent to me by others of pieces that 
are new to me. I call this "New Discoveries" although they may be items known to others
that I was not aware of. This could include a variety I had not seen before, a piece struck 
in a metal not listed in a catalog, or something I simply did not know existed.
I will keep these posted on this page for 6 months as well as posting on the proper
page on the website.





Generic Award Medal - obverse of Robert Sr's Union Agricultural Society
of Ridgeway and Shelby medal

White metal, 44.8mm.

The obverse of this medal utilizes the die from Robert Sr's Union Agricultural
Society of Ridgeway and Shelby medal, the reverse is not a die I have seen
before. I would guess this was produced to be a generic award medal
since neither die has any indication of a specific organization it may
have been produced for. I am going to speculate that this was something
produced by George H. using his father's die since he did have a habit of
doing this. If anyone has any knowledge of this medal, or knows of an awarded
example, please contact me.
