I think you've waited enough. I picked three winners at random (No really, I promise. I don't have photographic proof cuz I been busy making up a storm so just sit back down you).
So as you can see I have some gorgeous medals. The upper two have gorgeous backs:
As well as the ones above and below...
The one on the right says "NEPTUNE CLUB / SWIM CAMP / LOSERS". That's right. It's a losers medal. Sort of the weird equivalent of our participator trophies.
I'm having some very specific overmedalsupply panic.
Liberte, egalite, fraternite!
"National public assistance, inauguration of the maternal protection service, May 1915, Montevideo."
One Penny! It's huge- 1902! I like that it kinda looks like this lady (Victory?) is on some kind of Greco-Roman wheelchair.
And this one! I love the crusty side.
I love these puma coins. They're just regular ten peso coins in circulation in Uruguay and I kept two to play with.
Sixpence. What even is a sixpence, it's too cute. Might it mean six pennies?
This little container originally held a heavy stamp and pad. The upper top is as reflective as a mirror, which made me assume it was a lipstick case, but no. Oh we're moving on to containers now.
Let's see what's in these, shall we?
OK, super old coral, pierced. And this miniscule ivory chip with a lady fading on it.
I got this coin keychain because I loved how the guy mounted it. I got the face keychain just to remind me to carve some wood! I always meant to .
This baby snaps open wit a pop, revealing these three tiny pix:
I got a macrame cord for necklaces. They're made with this sort of plastic twine which looks all rough and awesome.
Let's break for some ridiculous Uruguayan architecture, shall we? Like at the top here we see a window balcony you can step out to from... the roof.
And the folks at that parlor were very amused to see the American, Mr.D himself, taking pix of his La Celeste ice cream.
