1967 Paul Revere IFCS Felix Schlag Medal OBV
This started at 50 bucks buy it now or bid at 25. I have only ever seen one other and that was for sale in a complete set and out of the question.

I almost bought it immediately as I was waiting on one to show up for over a year and looked almost daily.

I had promised myself that when it showed up, and I bought one that I would stop agressively hunting for medals. And I am doing just that.

Was I serious about getting this one?
With 4 seconds left, I did a manual snipe of $76.52 on top of my only bid. Nobody else knew what this was I suppose?

So this is the fourth medal in my Felix Schlag collection. It is also the rarest with a mintage of 1266. As far as I know, he is credited with only four medals from the Franklin Mint and now I have them all. Why Felix Schlag?
He won the contest for designing the "new" Jefferson Nickel for 1938.
the Jefferson Nickel is probably the foundation of my numismatic adventure in life. It's time to break them out and move on.
It has been quite sometime since I messed with my collection of Jefferson Nickels of which I have almost all that you'll find listed in the Red Book, proofs and varieties included and not listed as well. Here's a link to a website about Felix Schlag. You'll see these medals near the bottom of the long page.
