The Larkin Company was founded in 1875 to produce Sweet Home Soap. He was so successful at selling door to door ("soap slinging" or "factory to family"), that his line of soaps expanded and ultimately grew into a variety of household products marketed through more traditional channels, chain stores, and mail order. By joining a Larkin Club, you could buy virtually everything you needed from one source. Larkin's innovations extended to his treatment of his employees. The list of amenities included daily exercise, savings accounts, educational services, men's and women's clubs -- even free coffee. A dental clinic, doctor's office and public library branch were all on-site. An early air conditioning system provided fresh air. His biography, "John D. Larkin: A Business Pioneer" by Daniel I. Larkin was published by Western New York Wares in 1998.

This auction is for TWO vintage 86 year old '1875-1925'-'FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY'-'John Larkin Co.' Medals. Obverse is bust of businessman/pioneer John Larkin, with his signature. The reverse shows the Larkin factory in Buffalo, NY.
 
Larkin issued two versions of this medallion. One, for its customers and retailers, approximately the size of a silver dollar, quantity, a few thousand, 1 1/2" dia. & weighs 26.0 g. Bronze. This size was given out as a premium or gift to Larkin Co. customers. The second version, SPECIAL LIMITED EDITION, was intended for LARKIN UPPER ECHELON EXECUTIVES, Political allies and their very best retailers and field managers, quantity... A FEW HUNDRED. This coin weighs in at almost 7 oz.!! And measures about 3" in diameter.

 

A VERY RARE OPPURTUNITY TO GET BOTH VERSIONS!!

 

 
1 1/2 INCH VERSION
SET ON A DOLLAR BILL FOR SIZE COMPARISON
 
The coin is marked on the obverse with the designer's name, Julio Kilenyi (Kilenyi designed two so-called dollars, HK 738 (1926 Paramount Pictures) and HK 775 (1935 Mark Twain Centennial). Kilenyi also designed the 1932 Olympic participation medal, U.S. presidential medals and other medals honoring famous people, organizations, events and companies)  & struck by: WHITEHEAD & HOAG (marked on the larger 2 1/2" coin ). This medal is in excellent condition, as shown.

Mechanical device disclaimer: Every mechanical device has a certain life span. The day it leaves the factory, it becomes one day closer to it's end date.  When I find these devices, I plug them in, wind them up or put in a battery. If they buzz, whirr or seem like they're doing what they are supposed to be doing, I keep them for auction. At that point in time, I have NO IDEA of how old or how much use they have incurred. They may last a lifetime, or fail the next time they are turned on. Therefore, I sell these as "Decorative or Ornamental purposes" only, not functional. Which may be referred to as "AS IS".
Note: On some items, UPC symbols may have been removed for rebate purposes.
