  1. Numbered purple hearts are near to impossible to match with a name.They were issued by numerous lower level military hospitals or units. Most of them didn't hold any records. The only thing you can get from a number(range) is the manufacturer as stated by muckaroon1960.
  2. Here is a full set to a Dutch Marine NCO who got a Member (Lid) grade award in the Order of Oranje Nassau AND a Bronze Cross (Bronzen Kruis) bravery award. This is a ultra rare combination in a modern group. Enjoy the picture. Herman
  3. A modern group with the Oranje Nassau, knight, military division.
  4. The Dutch Cross for justice and freedom. The figure 2 and 3 on the bars are the 1 year tours a soldier did in Korea.
  5. Nice story IrishGunner. This is a clean example why we preserve history. Sometimes we collectors as keepsakers of history do the right thing, because it's just that, the right thing. Respectfully, Herman
  6. It is a put together. No Special forces officer with the name Delaney received a silver star, let alone 9... 😂😂 Regards Herman
  7. Let's revive this old topic. @SGM97B, well done. Indeed you are one of the few US miltary to participate and succeed. I enclose a picture of one of my favorite medal sets. This set is from a Dutch Colonel who was the first to reach 25 succesfull participations. At this moment only ten people succeeded to reach this number and qualified for the red enamelled cross. Regards Herman
  8. Some sort of an award medal of the American Legion, a US veteran organisation. On the US Militaria Forum you can find a big variéty of medals this organisation issued over the years. Cheers Herman
  9. It seems that Otto Skorzeny was awarded a Commanders grade of this Order for his action late 1944. His awards which were at his funeral in 1975 shows this Order. Regards Herman
  10. Thanks Bill for the effort and the information. Cheers Herman
  11. Laurentius is correct. It's the first type that existed till 1910ish. Regards Herman
  12. Your example isn't numbered. This ia always the case I think with original issued ones. Regards Herman
  13. What I meant to say was that they only used this ribbon and put a Czech officer grade attachment on top. I did not mean to say that this Belgian officer served on a Danish hospitalship or in a Danish unit. Just that the medal mounted used some different ribbon which looked close enough to use it.
  14. Hello Guy, I checked my pictures and the Internet, but nothing similar in the Belgian medals. Even the Belgian Red Cross medals do not have a match with this typical red and white variation. However I did find a match for the ribbon. It's an unexpected one but the ribbon of the Danish Korea medal is a match. See the pictures below. Regards Herman
  15. Well, then somebody used that Belgian ribbon to create a Czech White Lion on this ribbonbar. :-) Good luck with your search, Herman
  16. Could it be a Belgian Commemorative and/or Veterans Group/Society medal? They appear to be in this colour scheme.
