Miniature bronze medal of irregular circular form with loop for ribbon suspension; the lower half of the face with an American eagle, wings outstretched, perched on a laurel branch, the upper half with a five-pointed star incised with two smaller stars and imposed on a faceted fan; the reverse circumscribed ‘UNITED STATES OF AMERICA • MERITORIOUS SERVICE’; diameter 20.61mm (0.81 inch); on original ribbon with brooch bar mounted for wear with maker’s mark ‘‘LI GI’ for Lordship Industries of Hauppauge, New York. The Medal was instituted on 16 January 1969 to be awarded to members of the United States Armed Forces who distinguish themselves by outstanding meritorious achievement or service comparable to that required for the Legion of Merit but in a duty of lesser, though considerable, responsibility. Since 11 September 2001 the Medal may also be awarded for meritorious achievement in a designated combat theatre. A good period miniature.
