My book is pretty much done just smoothing things up.

Volume 1 is 400 to 500 pages alone and covers only about four chapters.

BookBaby (POD) wants $7 per page to edit! lol(shrug)¬¬

Here is my question:

Does anyone have ANY information around these glass Columbian half dollars?

Is that actually half dollar sized ?

My first thought was a paper weight (a coaster size).

That's only the second one of those I have ever seen. The first was only a few months ago in one of Charmy's show reports.( I realize this is of no help - sorry)

I'll check with the owner as far as size.

Just Bob, everything helps. Got a link to Charmy's show report about this.

Thanks to you both,

Lee

Sorry but just noticed this post now. I have some info that might help.  Check out website supplied, the first section references the coin  Apparently produced by Central Glass Company. Also supplied photo of coin without chip

Is it nickel sized? It says on coincommunity that they were a scheme by a glass company.

I don't see anything on that website that references that "coin".  It does say the glass designs were madified to be portraits of Columbus and Vespucio but they would still have been single sided images on the glass items.  Still it might be a possible strating point for the idea of a souvenir.  I know the glass was sold at the exposition.
