These brought some pretty decent cash for small veteran organization pieces. My assumption is the associated with Belleau Wood had something to do with it

 

Mini medal, fetched $116 at auction

The medals themselves are hard to come by and dont sell cheap. I currently have a named one with the box apart of a large ww1 2nd ID doctors grouping.

Thanks for posting these; now I've got to keep my eye out for those lapel buttons. Of course, those are pretty steep prices...

Mini-medals have never commanded high prices, but just this week I have seen staggering prices achieved for some American Society medals.  Have we entered into a new era of appreciation for minis?

A career stack to a Marine pilot, 16 minis, just ended on eBay tonight for 170...missing a planchet, with an Army occupation medal on it instead of Navy...higher than I expected, esp without a USMC branch specific marked mini on it
