San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge 1936

I'm not 100% sure why this medal is singled out in this forum, and I do not currently own one. One thing I do have that (I think) is historically interesting is a signed US Commemerative of the Bay Bridge -- signed by Jacques Schnier (1898-1988), the famous Berkley art professor who designed the commem. Some on-line info states: "His public commissions embraced extremes of scale, from the design and execution in 1936 of the commemorative half-dollar for the opening of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, to monumental statues and bas-reliefs for the Golden Gate International Exposition of 1939-40" I wonder if he knew anything about HK-476/7 ? Another interest question is what will happen when the new bay bridge (currently being built) opens... and the old one is torn down?

That's a neat item. I've not seen one before.
