    I found this today and I'm looking for more information about it!

    I was out searching an old homestead lot in Green Cove Springs, FL and I found this. I've searched all over google for information about it and what it might be worth but found nothing. On one side it has a monument with The Florida Constitution written at the top with 1834 above it and in the middle of the monument it has 1922 and underneath the monument reads "The Florida Constitution 1838-1938". On the reverse it has a women standing on a beach looking at a ship in the ocean, a palm tree, and hills. It reads "Centennial of the Adoption Florida Constitution Port Saint Joe 1838-1938". In super small writing, close to the edge it reads "HOAG or HOAC". It is so small and very hard to make out. I also found a nice 1900 Indian Head Penny close by. Any information would be most helpfully. Thanks again and Happy Digging!

    After searching google again for the word HOAG and medal, it looks like it was made by a company named Whitehead and Hoag Co. They have made numerous other centennial medals, but I still can not find any info on this specific medal.
    Cheers,

    Think it's a pocketwatch fob.
    Whitehead & Hoag made many commemorative medals, tokens & fobs.
    Nice old find
    Desire is oft more pleasant than acquisition

    That's exactly what it is. There was a big celebration in the town commemorating the 100 year anniv. of the signing of the state constitution. Here is the front page headline from The Star newspaper,Port St. Joe on Nov. 11, 1938. Very Nice find.
    You may or may not have to zoom in to read it, I zoomed in so it may stay that way.
