Medals

 

Medals come in all sorts. There are the military medals issued to people for their involvement in UN Peace-keeping Operations. Also there are all kinds of commemorative medals.

 

Below are the medals in my collection. I have tried to give as much information as possible, but all extra data is welcome at info@unostamps.nl.
