    Re: Chug Hits the GOLD!!!!!!!! Finally!!!!!!! Added pic of the back

    My wife and I have spent several hours on line each, looking for a possible match to this Medallion!!! there is nothing close that we can find!!!!!

    There are no marks on this Item, the park where this was found is a popular area for Russian Immigrant's to Vancouver during the summer.

    So i was wondering if this Item may have been brought from over there??
