Bald Eagle/Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Coin
LIMITED ITEM. SURPLUS - PREVIOUSLY OWNED. Once they are gone we may not get any more. Sold As Is - NON-REFUNDABLE.
The United States Teddy Roosevelt / Bald Eagle Commemorative Bronze Medal coin makes a great collectible numismatic gift for you and/or someone you know. In 2003 The Bald Eagle medal debuted. It was the first of four designs celebrating the 100th anniversary of the National Wildlife Refuge System. The obverse for all 4 designs is a portrait of Roosevelt, considered the father of the National Wildlife Refuge System and the reverses depicted the bald eagle, an elk, salmon and canvasback ducks.
The coin was kept in a plastic pocket but was not kept from the exposure to the air which then the coin has tuned and lost most of its luster. This coin originally belonged to a coin collector who stored it in our safe for years. Eventually we acquired his collection in the condition he left it and other than sealing it in plastic it is sold as he left it.
Note: Anyone wishing to purchase multiple coins or sets of coins, please contact us and we will work with pricing.
