Very nice! Is yours cased?  They usually come with a small case.

Here are my 25 & 40 Years.  Both are cased but unfortunately I haven't taken a picture of them in their cases yet.

Thanks for posting.

That cute little bugger beansprouted into a very tall , strange sense of humor, hard to describe individual LOL. He is residing in Germany at the moment but spends summers with me.

 

thank you for remembering and asking!

 

I am very proud of him.

He is almost up to my chin at 9.

 

We might have a future NBA player.

 

So many familiar names on this forum . Iam glad to be here!

To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath.
