Racine Numismatic Society member Joe Paonessa has created a medal to commemorate the group’s 70th anniversary.
Paonessa designed the Civil War style token and struck it on an antique screw press in pewter.
RNS member Sherri Spencer received the first strikes of the token prior to the society’s Christmas dinner.
The token is available at a price of two for $5. Examples will be for sale at RNS’ Feb. 22 coin show. They may also be ordered direct using PayPal by sending $5 to e-mail address GTSport@aol.com.
