I picked up a WW1 veterans military medals and confederate money. I would love any history on them. I did not want the medals to be lost to history.

Very nice, Ray!  The US was, I think, the only issuer to include 'battle bars' on the Victory medal and I suspect that some other country's soldiers were quite envious.  Despite arriving 'late' from the British and canadian point of view, the Doughboys did sterling work and ceratinlyearned their medals and commendations.

Hi Ray, like these a lot. The New York State commemorative medal (2nd left bottom row) should have a number top reverse. Which service is the reserve medal for? (next to NY).

Good morning from California. Yes the world war New York medal does have a 5 digit # enscribed at the very top of the back. I would have to go and get it to send you the #.. but I have tried to find out whom that # represents. If you find any info. Please forward to me. There was a website up in the past but when I open it it errors out. Thanks Raymond
