1LT Donald J. Gott, United States Army Air Corps, was awarded the Medal of Honor for action on November 9, 1944. The award of the Medal of Honor was made on May 16, 1945.
As you may expect, the Gott Medal of Honor was a WWII vintage medal.
The Gott medals (MOH, Purple Heart, Air Medal, see pic below) were on display in Oklahoma until early 2016. These medals then showed up on Ebay in Great Britain in March of 2016.
The seller (a subject of the UK) was contacted by the FBI, etc., etc. about these medals. The seller then pulled the ad, and stated at that time that "the family" was just looking for a fair offer, and he also stated that the family would be traveling to Europe that summer.
The next we hear about the Gott Medal of Honor is when there is a official unveiling ceremony of the Donald J. Gott Medal of Honor Exhibit at "The Plains Indian & Pioneers Museum" in Woodward, OK on Dec 1, 2016. EXCEPT, the Medal of Honor unveiled at that time is a current issue replacement medal (see pic below).
Here is a link to the article about the unveiling of the Gott MOH.
So the 64 thousand question is: What happened to the original Gott Medal or Honor (and the associated Purple Heart and Air Medal)?
Did they also take a trip to Europe in the summer of 2016. Perhaps a one way trip.
