Great info Roger! So it looks like Anna Williams is a contender!

There's still so much we don't know about these US Mint medals that it's pretty amazing.

Thanks for posting it.

As NARA documents are digitized and transcribed, more details will appear. For example, we now know that Isabella quarters were melted, then $3,500 restruck in 1896. Lots of details on the Columbian Exposition have appeared, etc. Once NARA reopens in the Spring we might see details on the trans-Mississippi medal and others.

PS: I really doubt Cleveland's wife would be on a medal issued during the McKinley administration. Send me a note if you want a large PDF of the composite posted above.
