  1. I have been thinking of collecting some of these (and ribbon bars with devices), but do not know enough about them, so a series on these medals would be very interesting for me. Steve

A Pennsylvania National Guard WWI Victory Medal, with a National Defense Medal, all for the grand total of !!! $11.50 the pair I know the National Defense Medal is not WWI, but just wanted to show what can be had if you shop around, and what can pop up when you least expect it.

  8. This is my grandfather in his R.A.O.B regalia, I never met as he died before I was born. The photo must have been taken around the time of WWII, and my mother can remember seeing it, but he never talked about what he did. What I need is, can anybody tell me what the insignia, chain and medal are and what they mean? He lived in Plymouth, Devon. Thank you in advance Rayjin
  9. Hi Just arrived Has 'PAUL DUBOIS' at the 5 o'clock position on the obverse, but no 'R' (Riemer) or 'LA' (Alexander Leisek) hallmarks. So not one of the unofficial Belgian Victory's. Size is 36.2mm by 3mm thick, and no markings on the edge. Can someone give me an opinion whether it is an Official type 1 or 2, or one of the repro's Thanks in advance Rayjin
