The National Parks of the United State celebrated the 1972 centennial of the National Park System with a set of commemorative medals. This lot consists of Volume 1 and Volume 2 of the storage books that were design for this medal series.

Each volume holds 18 medals in labeled holes. The designer of these medals was Frank Hagel, a prominent western artist.
