Franklin Mint Nixon Campaign Medal

Exonumia | Haney

Upon reading the blog “Coin Thoughts #86 by SUN” I remembered a medal I had stashed away in my collection. It was unwanted thing receiving no bids at the local club auction so I offered the seller what I had in my wallet at the time which I believe amounted to all of three dollars. The medal was obviously tainted by a man who resigned as president at a time when I was just a small boy playing with marbles and dreaming of being an astronaut someday. So from that perspective I cannot weigh in on the right or wrong of the time I just knew that there had been a change and now Ford was our president. The only personal experience I can speak to in regards to this former president is that I lived not far from his compound at the end of Orange County in San Clemente for a few years and I have eaten at the El Adobe in San Juan Capistrano that apparently he frequented when in town.
