1971 Annie Oakley NRA error Gallery
I recently bought this medal and the listing only showed the obverse. I collect medals with an Annie Oakley theme and some other non related collectibles about her.
I was quite excited to find this one in decent condition as many have awful rub marks on the frosted areas of the medal and are also seldom offered for sale individually. This is a pretty good example.

To my surprise, it had the wrong text on the reverse when it arrived. That of the medal titled "Punt Gun".
I suppose, my hunt goes on now for the correct version. This one took almost a year to track down at a reasonable price in nicer condition. It won't be easy to find a matching companion. This is my 7th Annie Oakley medal and I am aware of a couple more variations of those that I already have.

Annie Oakley
Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show
International Mint
20 grams 33 mm .999 silver numbered 01684
Error strike - has the reverse of the "Punt Gun" medal which is another of this series of 30 medals struck around 1971.

These sets were only made available to Lifetime Members of the NRA when issued and there were a total of 4000 sets minted.
The narrative on the reverse of all 30 medals were written by L.R. Wallack.
He has written several books such as:
