    A Group of Eight Wooden 1876 Centennial Exposition Medals. In a July, 2014 article published by The Numismatist, Donald G.

This is a lot of eight round, pressed medals in black walnut wood, manufactured by the Ornamental Wood Co., Philadelphia for the 1876 Centennial Exposition. The group contains: Tritt No. 3 George Washington large head, 62 mm; Tritt No. 6 Genl. Joseph R. Hawley, 62 mm; Tritt No. 7 (two pieces) Alfred T. Goshorn, 62 mm; Tritt No. 8 Independence Hall, 62 mm; Tritt No. 9 Main Building (with foreground), 76 mm; Tritt No. 10 Main Building (no foreground), 76 mm; Tritt No. 13 Memorial Hall or Art Gallery (no foreground), 76 mm.
