Can't find a single thing myself, strange. Might be from the 1972 Olympics that one of the athletes received as a medal for their work? Don't know.

Only pic I can find from an old eBay auction, might very well be the one you purchased.

thank you
I know I've been all over the internet for this one
I saw the e bay post but when you go there it's not there.
I bought this in an on line Canadian auction
the only thing I found is that the Yugoslav gov. gave out national hero medals since 1951. they have only given out just over 1100 so I think it's pretty rare.
I bought a book on Amazon for Yugoslavian coinage and medals to date. I'm hoping to find it in there.
thanks for your help
