Where are the medals?

 

What is the emblem on the Conspicuous Service Cross Certificate. 1988 was when the CSC was really cheaply made and looked more like a child's plastic toy medal. It's unusual to see a certificate in a presentation folder. Most of the decorations were sent via the mail, placed between two pieces of cardboard and wrapped in rubber bands.

 

These days the medal was restored to it's original design and is awarded in two styles. One, with a award number associated with the veteran, comes in a plastic case. Another, without a number, comes in the standard blue cardboard box that most service medals contain.
