Very cool never seen the pistol version I always wondered if they were the same. If you don't mind me asking how did you come across yours? My dad won the ones above so I always wondered what the value of one would be. I have never saw another one much less one for sale. Do you know if they come up for sale from time to time? Yours is from the same year as one of dad's that pretty cool. They were awarded at the same match I would think. Could be it was won by one of the guys in the picture with my dad. I'll ask him tomorrow if he remembers who won the pistol event. You never know he may remember who it was.

That would be pretty cool!  I think I got my off of ebay for around $30.  I have many shooting competition badges but not many in lucite and this is the only one I have with this type of base. You can see more mine here:

Wow Sgt what a awesome collection of trophy medals you have put together. If you don't mind me asking how do you find most of them? Are they sold on eBay a lot? I would love to add some to my collection and I don't ever seem to see them for sale. If you got the one above for 30.00 that's very reasonable priced I think. I also like the board of them you put together. But my favorites are the ones I believe you said were pistol awards that look kind of like the ones we have in glass. Keep me in mind if you ever come across any duplicates or ones that don't fit into your collection I would diffenitly be interested.

Thanks! I see them on ebay from time to time and always try to grab them when I can.  There are so many variations of them too.  If I come across doubles I will let you know!

Very cool you sure are getting lucking finding these. I know there not worth a lot of money in the hobby rite now but they should be. You have to think there where only a few of these given out each year. So they are beyond rare i can't understand why the price don't reflect that myself. You have put together a very nice collection of marksmanship awards I have to admit I'm a bit jealous lol.

Here's another view (sorry for the low quality).  Interesting that all the ones I find are pistol!
