Ed. Note: I’d love to make this a regular feature – so what’s the strangest/coolest thing you’ve found in your house? If you have a photo please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail.com thanks.

“These two photos are of a medallion I found in my basement in the 1300 block of Corcoran St N.W. I found it in the middle of the floor and my guess is it fell from the old fireplace from the first floor. Anyway, it seems to be an advertisement for two hotels in Atlanta, Ga that were built in the 1880s and razed in the 1920s. I’ve had it for about 10 years and have always wanted to find out more about this type of coin but was never sure where to turn. The old medicine bottle reminded me I had it.”

Any history buffs want to take a shot at finding more info about this one?
