The new GAF Membership medal
« on: January 05, 2008, 03:27:42 PM »
The new GAF Membership medals are available:











Price for the medal alone as I understand it is $40 engraving is extra. I don't remember what he said the price was on the rest of the items. and he talked like he was planning  a set discount if you bought the medal, the hat wreath and the collar tabs all together.

Um, the ribbon is reversed compared to the original.
Stars are on the left side on mine.

I have put in two e-mules to Steffan and received very little info as everything was in the "pre-production" stage.

I'm tickled purple to know that things have been finalized.

Thanks Hedley
I didn't notice. I'll mention it to Steff. I'm sure he won't have a problem correcting it.

I received the following from Steffan:

"I think $40.00 on the medal, $35.00 on the cap badge and $25.00 on the collar tabs is fair. Give me your opinion and we can go from there.  These will all come in their own separate boxes."

They look good to me and the prices seem reasonable.

I got the same response and will be sending in an order tomorrow.

I would hope that all those who needs or has wanted a medal gets their order in soon. 

The price is excellent compared to our earlier ones - and from what I've heard, the quality is just as good.

Show your support for both the GAF and Steffan (for getting them back into production for us).

Sir, I have the honor to report that I am finishing up my order tomorrow am.

Steffan was great and answered my emails in one work day - not bad at all in my book.

General hope all is well with your recent trips - we do need to get together so I can give you your VA BP badge.

Okay, so is this medal actually available or not? Could someone let us know for sure how much and where to send payment once they actually exist to be ordered?

Bristow Kid,

The email address and phone number are at the end of Pitspitr's first post.  Nice folks to deal with.  Got a WWI US Brodie helmet and watchband from them! ;D

Colonel Pitspitr,

Could you please explain the "need" for the GAF hat and collar devices? Are they required for GAF functions or are they an "extra" to be worn in lieu of standard issue insignia as one desires?

And you mentioned a GAF buckle in a separate post, are they available?

Thank you, R.R.

There is no "need"  for one to wear the GAF insignia. Remember the GAF has no uniform requirements. They are extra's that a GAF member can wear, or not, as he choses. I wear them when I represent or promote the GAR and also to show my pride in the GAF. I believe the belt plate is still available through Trailrider.

When I first joined the GAF there were still a few of the Starpacker medals left, however I wasn't in a position financially to be able to by one. When I could afford one there wern't any left. For the last couple of years I've been wearing a prototype badge with a GAR hanger.  I am pleased to report that I ordered my own medal yesterday! ;D ;D ;D

Steffan told me that he already had a second batch being made - due to the amount of interest he has recieved.

That is great!!

Now I need to get the little do-dads to put on medal - I think I have two awards but not sure.

Isn't there a database for getting awards from GAF?
