    I was just wondering if anyone has found a coin or other medallion to replace a Colt medallion with?

    At gun shows and even some gun retailers you will find "junk boxes" with old cast off, damaged or mis-matched stocks. I sometimes buy these if the are cheap enough (as they often are) to salvage the screws and medallions.

    If you have real Colt grips, on a real Colt gun?

    Changing the medalions to something else could knock several big ones off the collector or resale value of the gun.

    I should have done a better job and explained that I usually use the salvaged medallions to repair or referbish older Colt stocks to use on Colt handguns that have non-factory grips. Do the same with S&W and Ruger also.
