Matt R. forwarded more images of his collection of Central Intelligence Agency medals, and some are quite distinctive.
The above group all have the same "Awarded To" reverse seen last week.
You don't see medals like THAT every day. Creepy, yet fascinating. It would be very interesting to learn about the designers and manufacturers of the medals, even if we may never know the recipients or their deeds.
