1906 San Francisco Earthquake Medal HK-340A NGC AU SOLD
1906 San Francisco Earthquake Medal HK-340A NGC AU
On April 18, 1906, a very large earthquake and subsequent fire destroyed much of the City of San Francisco. While it is unclear who produced these medals, they were likely made for commercial purposes shortly after the disaster and remain very popular with collectors. This example of the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake & Fire Souvenir Medal was struck in brass and silver plated and is listed as HK-340a in the Hibler-Kappen reference on So-Called Dollars. This 1906 HK-340a Medal has been certified as genuine with AU Details by NGC and is encapsulated in a newer-style edge-view holder. The piece is lightly circulated and has a great overall look with impressive detail. There are some light scratches in the open fields on the reverse as denoted on the NGC label which prevented a numerical grade from being assigned to this piece. Otherwise, this is a great example of this very popular souvenir medal.
