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.
