Junior Sherlockian Society Issued Wooden Nickel at 2018 BSI Dinner

“It is a little souvenir …”

– A Case of Identity (IDEN)

We’ve had posts before where we’ve discussed souvenirs being issued for the annual Baker Street Irregulars dinners that are held every January in New York, such as Peter E. Blau’s annual publication or our own group’s souvenir card that was produced this January.

This January’s dinner featured another numismatic souvenir, a wooden nickel produced by the Junior Sherlockian Society. Sponsored by the Beacon Society, a scion of the Baker Street Irregulars, they are searching for children and youth eager to develop an understanding and appreciation of the great detective… Sherlock Holmes. The wooden nickel was distributed with the intent to increase awareness of the Junior Sherlockian Society and the efforts of the Beacon Society.

Attendees at the BSI annual dinner and the Gaslight Gala received 2 nickels each along with the pictured card in a small mesh bag wrapped with ribbon. They seemed to be well receive by the attendees.
