Numismatic Research Impact - Remember Pearl Harbor



Seller uses my research ...

I was searching the numismatic listing at an auction website (eBay) and found a "Remember Pearl Harbor" medal (I call it a medal due to its listing in the 2nd edition of Hawaiian Money).

I noticed several key words used by the seller from my previous NGC journal entries relating to this medal.

The terms include "Pocket Coin", "The Medal Arts Co" (word "The" is not normally used as its missing on the medal", "69 days" (estimated days between attack and advertisement for "pocket coins", and finally claiming its the first Pearl Harbor "commemorative" (numismatic material in remembrance of the Pearl Harbor attack, entry of the US into WWII and to seek vengeance on this act of war).

As update to my previous Remember Pearl Harbor medal journal entries. I submitted 11 medals for NGC grading (3 have undergone NCS conservation). Each are now awaiting NGC grading and encapsulation. I estimate that I should receive the medals in mid December.

My dad is a US Army World War II veteran. He was awarded the Army Good Conduct Medal, Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal, World War II Victory Medal. The three medals are in the photo. He was also awarded the Honorable Service Lapel Button World War II and the Marksman Badge with Rifle Bar.

Pretty cool to say that my dad is a WWII veteran (he is still alive). What is remarkable about him is that he is of Filipino ethnicity and born/raised in the Territory of Hawaii.
