A Canadian Star of Courage to J.A.G. Maille3850

A Canadian Star of Courage to J.A.G. Maille; Three-piece construction, bronze wreath and maple leaf on a silver star base, with maple leaves in the junction of the arms, engraved "J.A.G. MAILLE 22-IV-1976" on the reverse, 44.8 mm, original ribbon with pinback, marked "SPINK & SON Ltd" on the pinback, gilt loss overall on the wreath and maple leaf but silvering traces remain on the centrepiece butting the wreath, light contact, better than very fine.   Footnote: The Star of Courage (French: Étoile du Courage) is a decoration that is the second highest award for bravery within the Canadian system of honours, and one of the three Canadian Bravery Decorations gifted by the Canadian monarch, generally through his or her viceroy-in-Council. Created in 1972, the medal is presented to both living and deceased individuals deemed to have performed "acts of conspicuous courage in circumstances of great peril," and grants recipients the ability to use post-nominal letters; for Anglophones SC, and for Francophones ÉC.
