  • Interpreting the Code on the Coin FLA. No. 20

  • First Place in the Appreciation Contest received this Gold Lavalier (G.L.). Second Place received a similiar Lavalier but it was mounted in a silver bezel thus the name Silver Lavalier having the S.L. on the coin instead of the G.L. This Florida Coin's serial number represents that the Town is Fernandina (20) as well as the Winner is from Fernandina, Forida (20). If she was also the Town/City or Unit winner that won the County Contest her Lavalier serial number 20 would also represent the County of Nassau. The Young Lady represented both the Town/City called a Unit and the County of Nassau (20). Florida was unique in this contest in that the winners received their Lavaliers at the Unit or Town/City Level in the Contest rather than at the County level like most States. Missouri and the District of Columbia (D.C.) also differed at what level the Ladies received their awards. The County level Winners in Florida did not receive another Lavalier as they already had earned theirs. Next they went to the State level like all other County Lavalier Winners to compete for the State title to be two of the thirty young ladies from 14 States and D.C. to compete for the Grand Prize at the All-Southern Confederate Costume Ball in Atlanta, Georgia.
  • State Serial Numbered Award Coins

  • State Serial Numbered Award Coins of the Harvest Campaign were only used in four States. This is only in 27% of the 15 entities (14 States and D.C.) that had Counterstamped Coins. State Serial Numbered Award Coins were tested as Prototype Coins in the first of four Coin Movements known as the Preliminary/First Campaign. Award Coins were only tested as Prototype Coins in the State of Tennessee. There were an estimated 100 Prototype Award Coins for the four Territories (Nashville, Knoxville, Memphis & Chattanooga) of Tennessee. In addition I surmise there were 50 Prototype County Window Contest Coins There were about 50 National Award Coins of the "600 Series" that were allocated up to seven Southern States intended for this same Campaign. There were about 239 State Serial Numbered Award Coin in the Harvest Campaign, the Second Coin Movement and in the Last Call Campaign or the Third Coin Movement that ran simultaneously with the last two months of the extended Harvest Campaign.
  • Deciphering South Carolina's First Series of Two for the Harvest Campaign

  • The First Series of the State in the State contest of South Carolina is SC No. 1-100. The were Counterstamped with a Post Preliminary/First Campaign Die Stamp. No. SC 1-46 are County Auction Coins representing the 46 Counties of South Carolina that were Auctioned to pay for the Appreciation Contest, the State Balls or Receptions, as well as the All-Southern Confederate Ball in Atlanta, Georgia for those Lavalier winners that were invited. Therefore, no donated fund would be spent. This money from all the State Serial Numbered Auction Coins and the ladies entry fees to the Appreciation Contest were intended for this purpose. I surmise SC No. 47-92 were State Serial Numbered Award Coins . These Coins in South Carolina were given for First Place in the County retail Window Contest. Coin SC No. 93, I surmise was the coin given for Second Place in the State Window Contest judged from photos where the First Prize was a "600 Series" National Award Coin. SC No. 93-100 were intended for individual achievement in coin distribution (sales). The Second Series of South Carolina (S.C. No. 101-216) were all Unit or Town/City Auction Coins. South Carolina is one of four State that has Award Coins in the Harvest Campaign.
  • Kentucky --KY. No. 256 of potentially 370 Unit Auction Coins. Why are they so hard to find since FLORIDA had potentially 180 Unit Auction Coins or less than half as many Auction Coins ?
