Thanks Darrel. The boxed one is fantastic. I think this is the first or second time I've seen a box for these medals. Thanks for showing it.

They aren't what you call "rare" by any means, but you don't see them for sale often anymore. I suppose over time, they get to the point where the owners through them out because they feel they serve no purpose anymore
