1925 American Legion School Award - Girls
At a Garage Sale down the street from us recently, I couldn't pass up this American Legion School Award medal that was in a $0.25 bin. I mean...come on, right? I grabbed it and scurried home to find out that it is a 1925 medal given to girls. On the side you see above it reads: For God and Country.
How do I know it is from 1925? From this piece where it shows both sides that match to the medal I now have in my possession. 1925 is the first year they gave away awards to girls, so this one is the inaugural version and is listed on eBay across ranges from $29.99 to $89.99. To me? It is priceless and will go into my stash box...or maybe even a gift to my Dad for him to treasure.
