The last time we had this set for sale it did very well. It was
issued by the Canadian company ‘Husky Self Service Stations’
in 1970. They were struck by the famous, but no longer making
coins, Franklin Mint. Each copper medallion depicts a famous figure
from the old West and the collection comes with a booklet
telling you who each one is and what they did. Plus a presentation
card for displaying the whole collection.
Each medallion is still in the original cellophane envelope that
it was issued in. You get an eight page information booklet which
not only tells you about the person on the medallion, but also an
image of how they looked. Plus, a 4 page leaflet telling you about
the issue of these medallions. Finally a full colour cardboard display
card to mount and show off the entire collection of 13 pieces.
The ‘cowboys’ depicted are: Buffalo Bill Cody, Wild Bill
Hickok, Wyatt Earp, Kit Carson, Bat Masterson, Meriwether
Lewis and William Clark. The Native Americans depicted are:
Geronimo, Chief Joseph, Sitting Bull, Black Hawk, Sacajawea and
Crazy Horse. There are a total of 13 different bronze medallions all
in pristine, unopened, new condition. And remember this set is 48
years old! Don’t miss out on this one.
