What a beautiful ultra cameo proof medal!  Only 3,000 planned mintage and this is the only one I've ever had.  Excellent condition in the OMP.  NGC will certify since it was made by the official mint at Shanghai.  I decided to leave in the OMP because many collectors seem to prefer that.  Slightly toned on the edge but will easily conserve.  Please make offers.  The best one wins.  Email me directly at boybluejay@aol.com

That is such a lovely design and a beautiful piece.  I have no idea what it is worth, but Panda, I think you'll need to up your offer considerably, if you hope to win!  :001_tt2:

Highest bid so far is $325 which is still below my cost.  I have had numerous offers for trades.  I'm sorry but I do not wish to trade for this item.

This is a very scarce piece.

Interesting rectangular medal with a playful and light hearted design!  Certainly, I have never seen one of these medals offered on the internet or at auction during the past few years.  I wonder where the other 2999 are hiding or whether they were produced.         My bid - $350.

If a fake ID bidder runs up the price, the highest legitimate bid over the 2nd highest legitimate bid will be the winner.  In other words, I will toss out any fakes if there are any.

ps  I am certain this is too high for anyone who is a member of this coin forum, with any common sense, to bid higher.
