Medal: US Command Medals USN and USCG

Cool medal! These modern US military medals come in various shapes, sizes, and compositions and are available in most military exchange stores worldwide. The specific medal here is for Chief Petty Officer command identification for United States Navy (USN) and United States Coast Guard (USCG) officers.

The item shown is large (4 inches) and is made to affix to a wall or door. Other renditions include coins and badges. Value depends on the specific configuration and overall appeal.

These medals fall under the general heading of Challenge Coins [Press here for more information].

Values are generally quoted for pieces on the secondary market. That is, these items are purchased first hand from the military outlet stores at prevailing retail prices. Some of them are re-sold on eBay and similar web sites at secondary prices which are almost always lower than original retail prices. With this in mind, here are some approximate secondary market values:
