Third Class Prize Army Marksmanship Medallion

Can anyone tell me about this award? It is made of bronze and pretty thick and heavy. It has a wreath around the border of the back and is stamped in little letters at the bottom U.S. Mint. Who would this have been awarded to? Regular units, or National guard? And about what age would it be? THANKS!!!!

I would guess yours is an unassembled/unawarded example.
Very nice medal.
