    Here’s a bit of esoterica I discovered the other day. Sunbury, Pennsylvania, issued a WWI service medal, but there were two distinct types awarded. The obverses of the two types are similar but clearly from different dies, as shown here.

    When you get to the reverses, you can see the differences there. Type 1 does not include the state, "PA", but does have the war dates and the city seal. Type 2, includes "PA", but drops the war dates and the city seal. You can also see the differences between the pin assemblies.
