This presentation will shine some light onto the clouded history of the Medallic Art Co. (MACO) between 1902 to 1920. These "early years" follow the firm as it grew from a side project for an employee at a ladies handbag company, tell how bitter legal struggles almost left the young company bankrupt, and show that the foresight of a young entrepreneur transformed the firm into one of the most important producers of 20th-century medallic art in the United States.
