Very neat! My favorite is the Rochester one because of the quality it possesses. I have many WWI NY medals as well, which I will post when I go home soon. One of the older members of our comunity had a stack of about 20, boxed, mint vintage WWI City of Oswego medals! He gave one to me, and I'll post that here as well.

Do you still have that web page up and running? I'd love to see what you had 'collected.' I do the same thing too, I've copied a bunch of pictures from different web pages to sort of catalog the different variety's and locations.

FightenIrish35: I'll be posting more pictures from different states in the next couple of days.

I've always been curious about that........what numbers are traceable, and how do you do it? (If you're willing to share.) ;)
