    marking on French belt plate...

    Hello All, Any insight as to what this marking might signify? War trophy marked by its German appropriators, perhaps?
  3. Gentlemen, Just acquired a ‘14 Iron Cross 2nd Class and it was in this box. Any clues as to what award the box is for?

    French Croix de Guerre WWI

    here's an American award. Note the pin brooch. This was obtained from the soldier's descendants, along with written provenance from the family and a copy of his service record. Very nice to find a documented American example!

    just acquired, a *very* dark bronze example. It's quite aesthetically pleasing, imho.
  12. Thanks Chris! Any idea what the ribbon looks like?
  13. the fob chain was added by the seller. I'm sure it was a ribboned medal at one time.
