2. Bi-metallic medal from the Rappahannock Area Coin Club...by Jack Hepler, USA
The Rappahannock Area Coin Club has produced a second design of the Encased Virginia Quarter to Commemorate the 400th Anniversary of the founding of Jamestown, Virginia. This issue differs from the first in that a Denver mint quarter has been used and the ring is brass. This issue is limited to 120 pieces, most of which have already been sold. I have a few available for WBCC Members at the original price of Five Dollars plus postage. Please send requests to me, heplerj@juno.com
