    These things were given away as a prize in cereal boxes
    in the US back in the 1950s.

    From what I understand, there was a series of different awards
    from different countries including the British VC.

    Nice one!

    I seem to recall seeing/reading about these in the past. A little colletable in it's own right.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hey guys, I see this is an older thread but I thought I would comment because I just had a laugh related to a piece like this... I discovered that a certain notoriously shady dealer, whose name incidentally sounds like "shyster" is selling one of these things as a "very scarce Veteran's lapel medal" for nearly $400.00 ... I should pick it up along with those authentic Himmler collar tabs.

    Anyway, nice and interesting piece, Chopperman. Seems collectible in its own right.

    Charlie will always find a way to make a buck.

    If you really must have one of these, I will cut his price in
    half and sell you mine. Only $200 --limited time offer.

    Seriously, These things pop up on ebay every now and again
    for $20-$30.
