1969 Richard M. Nixon Inaugural Bronze Medallion-Signed
$45.00 ~ FREE U.S. Shipping - Insurance
Here's a beautiful 1969 bronze medallion commemorating the Inauguration of Richard Milhous Nixon as President of the United States. (Till this photo, this had been in its original plastic bag but the bag was too crumply to see through so we had to remove it.) This large 3-inch medal is signed F. GASPARRO. Frank Gasparro (1909 - 2001) was the chief engraver of the United States Mint from 1965 to 1981. You've seen his artwork more times than you know as he designed the Susan B. Anthony dollar, the Eisenhower dollar, the Lincoln Memorial reverse of the penny and the reverse of the Kennedy half dollar. This inaugural medallion shows great detail, both in Nixon's profile and in the reverse Presidential American Eagle seal and Nixon's words below. Signature is at bottom of Nixon's jacket. Near-mint condition...by the Mint man himself.
