Very nice placement of the Corps emblem and P.H.. Did you know that the heraldic shield above the head of Washington is the family crest of the Washington family, given in England long before the family migrated to the Colonies?

I agree with your statement about the composition. I did not know about the shield. Good information. I have two of these medals, and never really looked at it closely. I will now. Thanks. And Semper Fi to Jim Charette.
