The nation's highest military award, the Medal of Honor, is made of solid brass and then gold plated, which costs about $30.00. The equivalent civilian award, known as the Congressional Gold Medal, is made of solid gold and costs about $30,000. Currently, legislation has been proposed to make the MOH out of solid gold instead of gold plated brass. Anyone want to bet that it won't pass? Semper Fi. Gunhamr

The civilian one should also be make of brass. Who gives a shit what it is made of, it could be coal for all I care. As long as every one that sees it knows what it is!
