I received these from my uncle. He purchased a dealership a few years ago and the owner must have been in a rush to leave as he left everything in his office, including his wall plaques. in them were 6 service supremacy awards. all stamped sterling weighing 30g a piece. I don't know much else about them. Thought they were neat. Also left in the desk was approx 3 rolls of US nickels from the 40's. no silver ones.

It seems that these medallions were made when the spot price of silver was well below $5 per ounce.

Bit hard to work out a value for them, because the market would be less well researched and observed than for coins. Medals were not meant to circulate, coins were.

You would need to do some research into the American Medal market to determine a value, but that is one nice group of medals, that must have some significant historical value.

I have some old medallions that relate to cars, but none as nice as these.

Well worth keeping in the family. I would house them in acrylic screw capsules, just to preserve them. Do a ring around amongst some coin dealers, to find some capsules from ex proof sets.

I think these were handed out mostly in the 1970's. Possibly as early as 1967 and as late as 1982.
I believe there are 22 different designs. That's about all I could find out so far.

That mint mark on the edge by the sterling stamp is the same as on a medallion I got recently on ebay that is from Disney. The font looks the same as mine except mine is bronze. Have you found any information on who the manufacturer is?

I'm not sure who the manufacturer was either.

You can't purchase here until you reach 250 posts. I do still have them but don't want to sell at this point in time.
Have you checked eBay?

Hummm. eBay? Never heard of it. Although, I have been a long term member of PCGS, kitco forums, AGStackers, bullionstackers.com, realcent, bulliondirect, silverseek, the "old" goldismoney, the "new" goldismoney.com, coin talk, etc. I just happened to find your post here after about the 19th page of a google search and thought I would see if you were interested in trading or selling them to help me finish up my collection. I currently have 17 of these different types of Service Supremacy medallions as well as the original display case for them. I would have offered your choice of ASE, Maple, Engelhard, Onza, Philharmonic, Morgan, or of course cash / paypal etc. But, no, I dont have 250 posts here and it would probably take me 6 months to get there, so I am obviously not a person to be trusted. Thank you for your time and answering my newbie post. You all seem to have a nice little family here.

I also have three of these. I was a Chevy dealer in another life and earned the "vehicle preparation", "service advisor" and "quality control" medallions. Did anyone ever come up with a value for them, if any, above the bulk silver rate?

I'm not sure if there is a premium. I'm not thinking so.

Thanks, I'll just try to get the bullion value for them. I appreciate the response.

Automotive items have a following all their own. First figure melt value as your base value. Then google something like Chevy silver medal until you find some listings then click on the shopping tab which may take you to sales sites like eBay. Next go to eBay and do the same search. Then click on advanced search and choose completed sales or sold items which will give you some real market information. Keep in mind that sales on eBay will cost you about 18% in ebay and paypal fees plus the expense of packing and mailing.
