    Pontiac Medallion?

    I found a copper/bronze medallion (about the size of a US quarter) with an Indian head -- the front reads PONTIAC Chief of the Sixes, and the back has a wreath and reads PRODUCT OF GENERAL MOTORS. Anyone know anything about this piece? what years were the made?

    Pontiac was advertising how great there six cylinder engines were back in the 30's.

    The other says 1950's

    Re: Pontiac Medallion?

    Cool digs!!
    I found one too many years ago.
    Also, it had special meaning to me as where I lived at the time
    was about 2 miles from Apple Island in the middle of Orchard Lake in Oakland county Michigan and Chief Pontiac and his tribe inhabited that island back in the day.

    Thanks for sharing!
