The manufacturer of a locally produced firearm is honored on a new medal being issued by the National Utah Token Society.
Honored is John Moses Browning, a gun-making pioneer from Utah.
The central design includes crossed pistols with “45 Colt” and the 2009 date beneath them.
Around the top portion of the rim appear Browning’s name and the years of his birth and death (1855-1926).
For the bottom portion of the rim are the words from the second amendment to the U.S. Constitution, “The Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms.”
A silver version of the medal is $25, though the club does not say what the weight is. A copper version is $5 and a bronze version is also priced at $5.
Purchasers are asked to include $4 for postage and handling with all orders.
Orders should be sent to National Utah Token Society, P.O. Box 651071, Salt Lake City, UT 84165.
The club says it is a metal detecting club dedicated to preserving the past.
