FYI - This fine, single WWI Victory medal, with the reverse of the 2 Bars (Meuse-Argonne & Defensive Sector) engraved to the USMC recipient, a Private & member of the 6th Machine Gun Battalion and a recipient of a Silver Citation Star, sold yesterday on EBay for $1,007.00!!!!!!!! ASTOUNDING, I think!

Just noticed my heading is in error - It sold Yesterday, which was April 14th. Frankly, for a grand, I would have liked some more of Pvt. Mims' stuff!! :D
