Pair from 1974 Spokane World's Fair: Trade Dollar & Abstract Medal
This pair of So-Called Dollars are scarce, especially so the attractive abstract medal that has the large logo in the center. The trade dollar is not too tough to find, but nothing like the volume of Seattle 1962 Expo trade dollars that with a little looking can be had for less than their original face value. Please see the really top of the limited list of 1974 numismatic items, the proof medal we have listed in this sale. The trade dollar has a similar design to the abstract medal's other side (don't really know which is obverse/reverse) with the logo in the center but an entire added ring of text around the perimeter. The price is for both medals and with the cameo proof later in the sale you would have the three main medallic pieces from this fair that was held almost 50 years ago. That I was a young journalist on press credentials there doesn't quite seem like it could have been so long ago.
