Default Shiny Wheatie and a cool medal

I got back out again today and made the trek over to Kief, ND. I've had a lot of luck there this year so I figured I'd hit it up again. Kief is where I've dug a number of Injuns, a few tokens and the Franklin Half yesterday.

I went back to where I found the Franklin. Couldn't find anymore silver that I might have missed but I did dig up the shinyest wheatie I've ever seen!

I didn't have much luck after that.
I told myself one more keeper and I'll head home.

The final keeper of the day ended up being an Army? Good Conduct medal, possibly from WW2?
It's quite thick with very high relief.

Thanks jwp! I never imagined I'd dig something like that. My friend said it's probably WWII.
