Unique cdv showing a medal presented to the photographer of this image. The ribbon reads President and the medal is inscribed, Presented to C. Jacoby, February 20/84. Unfortunately we are having a hard time deciphering Jacoby’s middle initial. What we can read is a "mixture of English and French It reads 'Club pour passer le temps" - the club for passing time" (thanks to Rex Stark for his interpretation!). We have provided a large scan so if someone can be of help it would be appreciated. Obviously Jacoby was so proud of this honor that he chose to document it with this unusual image. Possibly the medal still exists, creating a wonderful adventure to locate it. It would be an exciting pairing if the search was successful. Identified to Jacoby, Minneapolis, MN.
