  1. Hi Mike, just wanted to let you know regarding the war of 1812 and Baltimore.
    In 1878 the Maryland State Fair was held in Baltimore. It was to honor the
    war of 1812 and the battle in Baltimore. At that time the state made silver
    colored coins with Ft. Mchenery on it and the battle. I have one of those
    coins, it is original. I have often thought about contacting the mayor of
    Baltimore to see if they have one.
