THE TUN TAVERN FINISHER MEDAL:
This momentous medal captures the iconic motif of the birth of the Marines. The date on the medal, November 10, 1775 is the birthdate of the Marines. The center logo is the original Marine emblem for the Continental Marines which dates back to 1775. It depicts a fouled anchor which is indicative of the amphibious nature of the Corps; atop the anchor is the crested eagle which symbolizes a proud nation. The original eagle was a crested eagle (which is a species found throughout the world) rather than an American Bald Eagle. The eagle and anchor are placed under a semi-circle of 13 6-pointed stars which represent the 13 American Colonies. The emblem is backed by a beer stein, signifying Tun Tavern as well as each of the plank holders or originators of the Continental Marines. This medal features a bottle opener to help you celebrate with us on the Historic Birthday of the United States Marines!
