This coin was at one time listed in reference catalogues, and is still in the Guide Book, with a suggested mintage of 50 pieces. It was said that King Farouk owned one.

In the Civil War token series, a piece distributed in this state (but not in the city referred to above) depicts a telescope and is said to be worth over a thousand dollars, if you can find one. And, oh yes, the state issued a commemorative half dollar in 1934. a. Pennsylvania. b. Illinois. c. Maryland. d. Oregon. 5.President George Washington has several numismatic legends surrounding him, including the following, only one is certainly true: a.

To make 1792 half dismes, he donated to the Mint his personal silver tableware.
