1893 Declaration Of Independence Dollar BRONZE EDGE
I have not found a large size BRONZE variety of this medal until I bought this one. It remains a mystery to me at this time.

Eglit-36 and Eglit-36A. Nathan Eglit recorded two sizes for this design and assigned number 36 to the small size (37 mm.) medal that was produced in white metal with a "milled edge" and assigned number 36A to the large size (58 mm.) medal that was struck in white metal and aluminum by Maier Weinschenk and William Boldenweck. So-Called Dollars by Hibler and Kappen mention Rudolph Laubenheimer of New York City was identified as a possible designer.

There was a unique GOLD medal presented to President Grover Cleveland.
On May 1, 1893, Maier Weinschenk and William Boldenweck delivered an address to President Grover Cleveland, presenting the historical world's fair medal in gold at the dedication of the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago.

Large size medals have the edge inscribed "Boldenweck & Co. Pat'd Oct. 7, 1890.
