Medal: US Boston Evacuation So Called Dollar  1901
Medal: US Boston Evacuation So Called Dollar 1901

Requester Steve did not give us a lot to go on. He says the coin represents 'Boston Evacuation Day' in 1901 -- the day British troops relaxed the Seige of Boston during the American Revolutionary War. More than likely, Steve has a So Called Dollar souvenir piece of this historic event.

On the front of this So Called Dollar is an image from a rare and valuable medal known as Washington Before Boston. The rare medal (see see this CoinQuest link [Press Here]) is worth thousands of US dollars. The smaller So Called Dollars are worth much less:

worn: $5 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $8
well preserved: $12
fully uncirculated: $25

Coin: 18691 , Genre: Medals
