I just submitted a US copyright on an article discussing a research find I made. For those who are familiar with my discovery models, this find adds a new piece of knowledge to the King Kalakaua 1 Coronation Medal knowledge domain.
The 1882 dated King Kalakaua 1 coronation medal has befuddled Hawaiian numismatics for decades due to its unknown mintage, designer and manufacturer. This medal is identified as:
2RM-9 (Hawaiian Money Standard Catalog 1991 Second Edition by Donald Medcalf & Ronald Russell)
RM-7 (Hawaiian Moeny Standard catalog 1978 First Edition by Donald Medcalf & Ronald Russell)
108 (Hawaiian Coins, Tokens and Paper Money1961 Revised Second Edition by Maurice and Kenneth Bressett)
9A (Hawaiian Money and Medals 1967 by Gordon Medcalf and Robert Fong)
My research has identified the designer and manufacturer, but not the mintage of the 1882 dated King Kalakaua 1 coronation medal. Hawaii specialist know that this medal is rare, especially in uncirculated grades.
Attached are the first two pages of the copyrighted article. The key items of the research Intellectual Property (IP) has been redacted, but one partial image reveals an exact description of the 1882 dated King Kalakaua 1 coronation medal. This is the key piece of knowledge that is part of this "research discovery".
One last thing, a new metal composition of 2RM-9 has been discovered !!!!.
