Anyone know of a GAR medal that is like the size of a standard mini medal? I'm trying to make a doll project, and need a small size. Mini medal size, as I am looking for the generic shape to make my own medal, and a GAR medal would work!

 

Thanks!

Elizabeth

Elizabeth,

 

Have you thought about looking for a G.A.R. lapel pin?  Depending on the shape (star vs. circle), it might be the right size to represent a medal for your doll.

Thanks! I've been looking and looking, but so far, haven't found anything that would work! I'm trying to make an Audie Murphy doll and make myself a medal. Hard!

The mini GAR medal is hard to find.  Also, many of them were made of gold by jewelers so they are expensive when you find them.
