My Great Uncle's Coins

Maker of Type I is unknown. Type II was designed and issued by Adam Pietz, Philadelphia, PA, engraver and die-sinker. Both types were sold for presentation by families and friends to departing servicemen. They were not popular and their sales were limited.


It's a cool coin, glad it's in the collection. Looks like they sell for about $6. My great-uncle was an officer in, I believe, the Air Force in WWII, but would have been an infant in WWI.

Just a collector.
