So-called Dollars - Criteria?
1 1

I'm probably a bit dense for this, but the more I read about So-called Dollars (H-K and friends), the less I understand about what differentiates one of these small medals from other similar-seeming medals. The old and new book versions only confuse me more. Am I looking for something that does not exist or am I missing it entirely. (Did that on the Beltway just yesterday afternoon....)

Perhaps the "wide umbrella" has something to do with the fact So-Called Dollars have been so strong in the market. The more items you get in the book, the pieces some collectors think they need.

There are hundreds of medals and tokens listed in HK, and many more that are not. I'm not sure there really is any rhyme or reason to it.

I find it impossible to collect SCD's without owing and cross-referencing Both Editions of the book. There are enough discrepancies in books and including the app to determine the proper HK number. In many cases (see HK-299-304, with stars),

"NOTE: Two varieties are known, With or without a star on the map at St. Louis: variety without star rarer " 

The Alaska-Yukon Pacific Expo. medals, HK-364 - 378 are represented by different pictures in both editions which demands the question, A well planned 3d Edition of "So-Called Dollars" to tie together both Editions.
