  1. Hi Jim thanks for the info the NZOSM is genuine, issued nu-named as many were and the naming on both Korea medals are official replacements and seem correctly named in the same style as another NZ Korea pairs I have in my collection as I think only New Zealand named the UN Korea regards Hi again Jim I take it that ""the NZ Korea Roll" by Howard Chamberlain is a book and where could I buy one regards
  2. Hi just finished mounting my latest NZ group and nice three medal group for Korea War Service Awarded to: Name: Wilson A.A Rank: LSG Service Number: 106125 Service: Royal New Zealand Navy Medals: New Zealand Operational Service Medal, Korea Medal, United Nations (Korea) Medal Regards C
  3. Hi John I tend to agree with comments listed above I have my grandfathers WW1 Trio as well my fathers WW2 medals and know that the ribbons have been replaced several times by them due to they always wanted them to look pristine as over time they faded or just had some slight wear and tear, but I feel that new ribbons never detracted from them both proudly wearing them on memorial services. in my collection I have at times have needed to replace ribbons especially on trios as I like to court mount my trios (again a personal choice which it self is a different debate) due to one or more of the ribbons have been badly damaged or missing. Often I buy medals with no ribbon, so I replace them with good quality ribbons like many others I have a box or original or possible original ribbons placed in medal envelopes marked from the where they came from so if required when of if I go to selling them I can offer them as part of sale again I feel that it comes down to the individual on how they wish to maintain the ribbons on medals they collect in a manner that makes them happy and allows them to enjoy their hobby C
