Robbing medallions off MKIV grips?

Replaced the plastic grips on a MkIV, is it possible to remove medallions to be able to use them elsewhere? Can't tell how attached.

Find a punch that is the size of the inside of the medallion and place the grip on a rolled ;up towel and GENTLY tap and push the medallion from the back. They will come out. I have used them on other installations with no problem.I drill the holes with a brad point drill bit of the correct size as the OD of the medallion. I install them using clear RTV. never a problem.

I have taken them out of various sets of grips by "drilling" the staked ears off the medallion stake on the inside very gently with the correct size drill bit. They will then press out easily. Then glue them in the next set without having to enlarge the existing hole if you removed a set from them.
