Hi, Given your interest and expertise on the WWI Victory medals, it occurred to me that you might know whether there is a good illustrated comparison between the different types of ribbons used by the allied nations for their issued medals. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Regards, garven
No; there is no direct illustrated comparison that is currently in print (yet) that shows the differences in ribbon tones/hues. Some of the vics from specific countries (France, US, Great Britain & Commonwealth, Italy, Japan, and Czechoslovakia) have distinctive ribbons so they are easy to identify. There is a pair of panoramic images showing various vics side-by-side that I posted to the 'WW1 Victory Medals General Discussion' sub-thread thread of the main vic thread that does show the variations in ribbons.
There is also a sub-thread in the vic thread called 'Victory Medal Ribbons in General' which should provide additional examples.
Hope this helps.
