The picture below shows larger front and back views of the (2) Different Old New Hampshire State Advertising or Commemorative Souvenir Token Coins in this lot. The left one appears to be brass, and the right one is aluminum. These are not dated and the years that they were made are unknown. The left one has the New Hampshire State seal with a sailing ship, a rising Sun, and a wreath, on one side, and the American Great Seal on the other. It is marked on the two sides as follows:

SEAL OF THE STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE
1776

UNITED STATES OF AMERICAN
GREAT SEAL



The right coin has an image of the profile of The Old Man of The Mountains in New Hampshire on one side, and Mount Washington, in the White Mountains on the other side. The two sides of this one read as follows:

WHITE MOUNTAINS
NEW HAMPSHIRE
OLD MAN OF THE MOUNTAINS
DISCOVERED 1805

WHITE MOUNTAINS
NEW HAMPSHIRE
MT. WASHINGTON
ELEVATION 6,288 FT.
HIGHEST PEAK IN THE EAST
ASCENT BY FIRST WHITE MAN
DARBY FIELD - 1642

Both of these for one price! To judge the sizes the larger token coin measures about 1-1/2'' wide. We are not coin graders, and conditions can be subjective, so please see the picture(s) to judge for yourself. To us they appear to be in excellent to mint condition as pictured.

Below here, for reference, are a few words about The Old Man In The Mountains:

“The Profile was a natural rock formation that was formed by a series of geologic happenings that began an estimated 200 million years ago. Hovering majestically 1,200 feet above Profile Lake, the Old Man was made of five separate granite ledges arranged horizontally to form a man's profile. From chin to forehead, the Profile measured about 40 feet and was 25 feet wide.”

“The Old Man of the Mountain has been the State Symbol for New Hampshire and was chosen as representation for the New Hampshire Quarter.”

“Old Man of the Mountain Collapses”
(Release Date: May 3, 2003)
(Concord, N.H.) “The Old Man of the Mountain, the enduring symbol of the State of New Hampshire, is no more. Some time between Friday evening and Saturday morning, the stone profile that draws hundreds of thousands of visitors to Franconia Notch State Park each year collapsed. On Saturday, May 3 at approximately 7:30 a.m., two Franconia Notch State Park employees noticed that the Old Man of the Mountain had collapsed. At this time it appears as though the forehead and the nose are missing.”

“The citizens of New Hampshire are mourning the loss of this familiar icon and appreciate the many expressions of condolence that have been pouring in to the New Hampshire Division of Parks and Recreation.”
