  1. He's not on the roll for a federal Mexican Border Service Medal. These medals came out a the US was gearing up to send much of the National Guard to France, so many veterans never heard about them. Ohio had it's own Mexican Border Service Medal, so he may have acquired one of those. They were unnamed and unnumbered.
  2. 226 Lance Sergeant E. L. Andrews, 2/11th Regt.

    Monaco badge

    I'd guess that the gilt badge is either for a consul-general or perhaps someone in the diplomatic chain.

    Monaco badge

    After some back and forth with the Embassy of Monaco here in the US, the Ambassador has confirmed that this is the badge given to Consuls of Monaco. The Ambassador is herself a past consul and consul-general.

    2 Cuban Awards

    There are very few published sources on Nicaraguan awards. However, one light in the darkness is a book published in 2002 by Luis H. Flores called"Nicaragua: It's Coins, Paper Money, Medals, Tokens". The section on medals (which also covers military insignia) runs just over 100 pages and illustrates many of the awards from the Daniel Ortega period. This is the only place I've ever seen these Ortega-era awards. It's a very hard book to find, but might be available through numismatic book dealers.

    Monaco badge

    OK, not exactly French, but close. This badge came to me identified as the badge of an ambassador of Monaco. I've seen a similar badge, but silver-gilt, also without a solid identification. Does anyone know what it actually is? It measures 61x44mm.

    Unknown award with UN connectuion?

    Many thanks, Frank. That clears it up.
  9. The text is not the problem. The problem is who issued it and why?

    Pakistan Princely States - Bahawalpur

    Jeremy Tenniswood Militaria often has Bahawalpur ribbons available on his web site. I haven't looked in a while, however.
  11. Thank you, Paja, for having a memory far better than mine.
  12. I cannot find this in my Greek sources. What is it?
  13. Thank you for the information.

    Unknown cross

    The reverse is blank. The marriage possibility is certainly viable. This came out a very large estate collection, so there's no way to go back through the previous collector.
  15. Thank you both for the input. It's been most helpful.
