I stumbled onto your website doing a search on Google. I saw an article about CIA medals. In answer to your question, yes, they do pop up on eBay.
I have a collection of about eight different CIA medals. As for giving the medal back, I don't believe that to be true. I know a couple of people that got awarded medals for certain acts of "heroism" and they display them proudly in their home, with the certificate that accompanies it.
Matthew provided the above image of one of his duplicate medals. Thanks!
