When I saw it, I knew that I had to send it to you, because of just that, your connection to Paducah.
I began collecting such items when I was a child, and my grandfather gave me an older medal.
Then, Dh gifted me the ones that he had collected as a child and teen. I had only a few before that.
Since then, I've kept my eyes open for similar items for sale. I've found one here and one there at estate sales, shops, and so forth.
That one came from a local shop. It was in a box with small things for sale, like rings and older coins.
I don't know how it got all the way to N. California, but as I said, once I saw where it was from, I knew that I had to send it.
I'm glad that you like it. : )
