    US NAVY pre WW1 and WW1 medal group

    Many thanks Claudius for your response! As proposed, I'll try to get a ribbon for the New York medal and keep enjoying this unique group! I add two photos of the inscriptions on the back of the clasps...
  6. You have posted it in the correct thread. And thank you for the contribution.
  7. Sorry, I still have to learn how to post correctly. I hope I have posted the document in the right thread. Kind Regards, Damiano

    US NAVY pre WW1 and WW1 medal group

    Hello Nikos: Welcome to GMIC! Keep in mind this isn't my area of collecting, but I can recognize a great group when I see it. From the pre-WWI/WWI era and all engraved to the same person. A wonderful set. Individually these medals are not worth that much, but belonging to the same person they become an unique group and would likely attract some interest (if you were looking to sell them). IMHO -you should put a ribbon on the New York Medal. It wouldn't be that hard to find one. I've included a link to see what the ribbon pattern should look like. Don't worry, adding a replacement ribbon to the medal will not affect the value and will actually improve it. https://www.google.com/search?q=state+of+new+york+medal+wwi+service&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=v1tFX6l0rEX-NM%3A%2CkV44KXMtlsdNnM%2C_&usg=__ZGD_05_wGh-UO4uRZzaAVR-MvmE%3D&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwje2Y-Sn-XbAhUKHqwKHZVYB0cQ9QEIaTAJ#imgrc=yx-TV2oVQUdyGM:&spf=1529600864214 You can check with the US Navy Archives to see their policy on releasing information on this gentleman. They may have records on him, but they may require that it will be only released to family members. Ancestors.com may also be an option if you have an account.

  10. Hi, Although a Greek medals and decorations collector, I recently acquired a group of US Navy medals attributed to the same person (obviously an American of Greek origin!). The medals are: Good conduct medal (with Nebraska, Nevada and Navy Yard N.Y. clasps), Mexican service medal, WW1 victory medal with Grand Fleet clasp and State of New York WW1 medal. All medals are numbered and named. I would be happy to have your comments on this group i.e manufacturers, varieties and an estimation on their market value. How would be possible to get more information for the person decorated by the US Navy records? Thanks, Nikos More photos...

    Help Finding Medals

    ssmcanada, Most medals issued by India were named to the recipient so it would be difficult to replace the missing ones. You could search for unnamed ones and have them named to your great grandfather. The most likely place to find replacement Indian medals is on ebay.com. Here s a link that you may find useful. https://www.ebay.com/bhp/india-medal As for the medals issued by Great Britain, you could apply to have them reissued but I can not direct you to the correct place to do that. Good luck in your hunt for these medals. Regards, Gordon

    Father's Day Gift

    Sorry, Ed, way outside my lane and my usual Google tricks are coming up empty.
  15. M'Lord. You are not being ignored! I saw your post and fully intended to see what I could dig up, but life intervened: had to buy a new computer and now have to find a new car. That said, I do hope to find some photos of relevance to your question. And welcome to the GMIC! Peter
