Considering the US Government does not allow replica MOHs to be made in the US, I think it is highly unlike they would ever allow foreign made replicas
to be imported for any reason, marked replica or not.

The press would have a field day.

Was just given some feedback from our legal advisors reference purchasing MOH from outside the US. In short they said Don't. There are duplicate MOH's available for use in museums through the US Government channels but there are some stringent requirements, which in some cases would be more of a deterrent and most people will give up rather than go through the process to have one displayed.

For those who own genuine U.S. made Medals of Honor, my hats off to you. We need to protect and preserve our National Right to posses our heritage. The government tries to take our rights way, our history away, even our right to say the pledge to our flag. We have so much to take back from our foul thinking government, it will never end. Keep our Flag Safe, our most Charoused Medals Safe, our Freedom Safe, our America, "one nation under GOD" safe!

Buy we are missing the point here.

Can the us Government supply a replica Civil War Medal of Honor for display purposes?  What about a replica Tiffany Cross Medal of Honor for display purposes?

Current issue MOHs are no problem, it is the older versions that are the issue.

And just to be clear, no one is suggesting purchasing or importing a replica Medal of Honor WITHOUT OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT PERMISSION.

It is the process of getting government permission that will be the real challenge.

Perhaps you could write a letter to the Feds. and ask them if they can/will provide US made obsolete MOHs for legit. institutions.

Update:

I was contacted by Human Resources Command at Ft Knox. A sub-branch called Awards and Decorations division contacted me after I asked about Display MOH's. They told me that they only can provide current issue MOH for display and it is clearly marked on he back DISPLAY. When I asked about earlier versions of the MOH, specifically the Civil War and Indian Wars period, I was told that they do not have any replicas of these medals.

I am in the process of filling out the paperwork to obtain a display MOH..

Will advise..
