Sold for $255    Ebay 282753451757       4  Feng  The Souvenir for Chinese Excavation medals.    Gilt brass?  Aluminum?    I remember seeing some of these medals on ebay in the past but ignored them.      Maybe this higher price will bring more to market.     All these gilt brass or aluminum medals are very rare and much more rare then Feng's 5 silver sets.      The market is asleep but will awaken when a publication or article comes out.....

Rarest...

1 CATTE gilt brass set w/ box...

7 CATTE aluminum single medals...

1 The Souvenir in Xianying in China gilt brass w/ box

next rarest...

4 The Souvenir for Chinese Excavation single medals.....(have seen others in the past)

4 & 5/6  Gilt brass Archaeological sets w/ wrong boxes....

This group sold for a lower price due to seller based in New York and auction ending at 8 am EST or 5 am PST on the West coast.     Ebay prices are lower for off hours auctions or holidays.     I do not think we will see sets or groups of these medals selling for $25 to $50 anymore but i hope we do.      Maybe more will be listed......

Maybe Fwang posted this link earlier.     It makes sense to me a Chinese coin collector could interview Feng in China to write a publication but so far no luck.     I keep pulling chains to accomplish this task and will continue to do so.     The Grandfather of MCC medals should have some importance.     Some experts say pre MCC so no big deal while others totally believe in his contributions to the Chinese coin/medal community and have high regard for him.      As stated earlier, many Asian dealers/collectors have never heard of him.     The author of a publication should so well selling a book on Feng Yunming.....
