    Just uploaded a Xi Shi Medal Set video on youtube. Please bear with my amateurish efforts; will get better with time. I wish to acknowledge the generosity of mmissinglink who introduced me to this wonderful medal set. Thanks.

    hey keep on trying, when you post, you'll see 'youtube video' Hit that button, and a string will show up. You need to get the link from your youtube page, but you only need to piece in yellow, and you insert as seen in the picture and you should be good go. all the best, and nice set

    The trick is, I believe, follow what Barsenault had written but remove the "s" from the "https"...then it should work fine.

    Excellent video! What a really awesome, and low mintage set. Good job with the stats and info included in the video.

    Excellent video, KOT! Loved how you included information on mintages, designer, etc...

    Missing: thincat is selling a couple of brass and copper Xi Shi sets if you are still looking?

    Thanks for the heads up Taz. There's only 1 set left...3 have sold already.

    The prices on the Xi-Shi medals have certainly gone up....wow!

    I just started a general purpose thread to accommodate all tastes and opinions. A short attention span kind of thread for posting whatever miscellaneous contributions you have; especially those that don't fit the current threads or don't need a new thread or can't be sustained past a few comments. This is where we can dial in for our daily fix of everything MCC!!!!

    Mmissinglink if you go back to post #67 on this thread you will find my youtube video! The middle box is what he is referring to; a collectable piece in itself!

    Box on left came with first set and box on right came with today's set. I think the wood is for Silver plus it has a xi shi printed on the top cover
