I will be ending all of my listings soon. Franklin Mint History of the United States. Large LOT of 70 medals in 35 cards (list of years below).
Manufactured weight of 600 grains (1.25 troy ounce). Marked Sterling Silver on edge with production no. The condition of the medals appears to be excellent.They are encased in a thin plastic film inside the cards. Except for the reverse of the first four in the series, they do not appear to have any coloring from oxygen exposure.
The cards are in fair condition and a bit musty in odor. I have close-up photos of each group of 12 (11) cards (close-ups of the first set are posted), which I can forward upon request.Approximate weight of silver per medal is 1.16 ozt.
