Augustas B. Sage Masonic Medalets
Although Sage seems to have envisioned a series of these medalets the Masonic Medalet No. 1 is the only one known today. Originally struck only in copper, circa 1859, restrikes were done in other metals sometime in the 1870's as well as various mulings with both Sage related dies and other Masonic related dies. For a complete treatment of these issues see Q. David Bowers "American Numismatics Before the Civil War"

Augustas B. Sage Odds and Ends Series
Issued early in 1859 this was the first series of tokens issued by Sage, then only 17 years old. The three different medalets depict diverse and seemingly unrelated topics. The No. 2 medalet is found with two obverses, as well as a muling of these two. Otherwise no mulings or strikings in other than copper are known.
