George Cuhaj (a coin collector, actually) wrote an article about the "Archbishop Spellman" medal for Military Trader some time ago. The article is finally available online at:


My dad received one of these medals from the Archbishop for serving mass during one of the Archbishop's visits to his camp. He received the smaller of the two varieties that Cuhaj described in the article.

Does anyone have any other documentation on how/when these medals were given? The author references seeing examples with suspension loops but offered no picture of such. Does anyone have an example on a ribbon?
