Somethings Missing (Addendum): Spider-Man Medallion


Did anybody out there actually order this item? I've always been curious about whether the things tarnished over time or not. I remember these advertisements running back in the 70's, but I never took the bait and sent off for one.
There were at least two other "Marvel Medallions" featuring the Incredible Hulk and Conan the Barbarian. Now after all these years, I finally have a hankering for something like this, nostalgia cravings I suppose, but I imagine they would be hard to come by.
If any lurkers in the Catacombs have a line on these coins, or bought one for themselves and want to drop a comment, please feel free .... and thanks for stopping by!

I see these at comic conventions ocassionally, they look like they do in the ad I guess... never noticed any kind of tarnish affect. Nor have I noticed any that were originally a coin but then turned into Mt Rushmore.

I'll have to pay closer attention while I'm on this summers convention circuit.

Thanks for the input, Karswell.

These are available on ebay. The Hulk coin goes for the most as it was the only one that sold out when originally sold. There are also silver versions, but they are rare. They are really kinda neat to have. I have all three.

I own one of these medallions, quite a nice item. Doesn't appear to have tarnished.
