USS Tennessee General Excellence In Athletics Medal

Recommended Posts

I found this medal a year ago at a swap meet. It is 1 5/8" tall and name engraved on the back. I would like any information you may have on this item please.

It appears to be a 1920's or 1930's sports medal for the USS Tennessee - There are quite a few different styles of sports medals attributed to the Tennessee - I was not able to find Blin or Blins or Blinn in Ancestry - It looks like it may have been worn as a watch fob - Nice medal - If you can send the name I can try ancestry again in case I did not get the spelling right
