I was looking back on things I saw in 1970's or 80's and remembered
The US medal of honor!

Collectors in U.S. no longer are allowed to own them!

I took a picture many yrs ago at a older collectors house of his Medal of Honors medals!


He has died a few yrs back in his 80's and have no idea what happened to them!

His brother died also and I don't believe he had children!


In Ohio there was a museum in Canton I think that has closed that had many nice original ones from Ohio winners

of medals!

I took some pics of afew they had on display!

I will have to find them!


The big Medal of Honor Museum is in Georgia I believe!

Think the first ones went to Andrews' Raiders.
