Fort Findlay Sesquicentennial Silver Dollar

About:
The gold sticker on this Peace Dollar reads “Fort Findlay Sesquicentennial Findlay – Hancock County, Ohio” with 1812- 1962 under the image of the fort. The gold sticker is in good condition. The reflective sticker caught the light while scanning and resulted in a blurry image. When viewed in person the image is quite nice and only has one small wear mark on the ‘F’ in the word Findlay. While I am sure others exists this is the only coin I have seen with this sticker.

History:
In 1962 the town of Findlay Ohio celebrated its Sesquicentennial (150th) anniversary. The town of Findlay was named after Forth Findlay which was established during the war of 1812 by Colonel James Findlay. The original Fort is gone and now the site is marked by a sign giving the history. These coins were produced to mark that event. Given the current size of Findlay I would think that at the most only a few hundred of these coins would have been created.
