_THIS AUCTION IS FOR A VERY NICE MEDAL FROM 1948 COMMEMORATING THE DEDICATION OF THE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT IN NEW YORK, NEW YORK. THIS MEDAL WAS ISSUED BY THE PORT OF NEW YORK AUTHORITY, DESIGNED BY THE FAMOUS NEW YORK SCULPTOR JULIO KILENYI, AND WAS STRUCK BY THE ROBBINS CO. OF ATTLEBORO, MA.__ IT IS ALSO CONSIDERED A SO-CALLED DOLLAR, AND IS CATEGORIZED AS HK-499 IN THE HIBLER-KAPPEN REFERENCE GUIDE. _In my opinion it is in extra fine condition, with little wear, is made of gilt bronze (although almost all of the gilt is gone), and is 34.4mm in diameter. I think my starting bid is very fair given the H-K price guide lists this as being worth up to $75 in circulated condition. Grading is subjective, so please look at the super-sizable pictures and grade for yourself.
_SHIPPING FOR USPS FIRST CLASS MAIL IN A 6X9 YELLOW ENVELOPE WITH THE MEDAL IN A 2X2 SECURED BETWEEN TWO PIECES OF CORRUGATED CARDBOARD WILL BE AN EXTRA __$3.50 (SORRY, USPS RATES JUST WENT UP)_, which I think should be pretty close to my actual cost. I do combine shipping and will do my best to ship multiple items together at a reduced total shipping cost. Please no International bidders as unfortunately I've had some bad experiences shipping internationally. Good Luck, and HAPPY BIDDING!
