Bradford's Selective WW2 Memory
« on: May 24, 2019, 08:25:08 PM »
The 75th anniversary of the 1945 allied victory is coming up, and of course there will be many coins on that occasion next year. The US company Bradford Exchange apparently wanted to be among the first to issue some "1945-2020" medal ... and designed it so hastily that they forgot about a "minor" detail.

One side shows Truman and Eisenhower, and the other one features the colored flags of (in the foreground) the United States, (below and partly behind it) the United Kingdom and (in the background) France. That's it. ::)

Sure, maybe that company does not know about which were the Four Allies. Or maybe the flag of the fourth ally is completely hidden behind the three other flags. Or the medal is a "find the mistake" issue, and whoever finds it will not have to pay the $40 price but get it for fre--nah, finding that error is too easy.

Can you imagine how much red ink you are talking about? :D

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
