Marathon medals for sale on eBay; maker is disgusted

The owners of a company that manufactures medals for the Boston Marathon said they are disgusted to find out people are selling them on eBay for hundreds of dollars.

Kim Ashworth, of Ashworth Awards in North Attleborough, said she was unaware the medals, which feature blue-and-yellow ribbon, are showing up for sale online and is concerned thieves may be profiting from Monday’s tragedy. As of Wednesday afternoon, there were five active listings on eBay, with bids ranging from $162.50 to $306.
