  1. Is this an M34 side cap or possibly an M38 sidecap? The grommetts and the stitching seems different from most M34's I have seen. Thanks
  2. Can someone identify this ribbon, its has a pin back and the ribbon is sewn around the bar in black thread thanks.

  5. Thanks all. this is why I have joined the forum, indepth discussion, sharing of ideas and opinions and too learn all the peculiarities in these u boat badges. There is so much to learn and its obvious that you have acquired alot of knowledge and are able to apply it. I have learned a lot and I thank you all for sharing it. thanks, Bosungus
  6. Hi TimB, I have studied the scroll and to me they do not appear the same. In addition the cross on the crown certainly is not of the same mold as the example you posted. There appears to me, too many differences. Thanks, Gus
  7. Hi, As a point of clarification are the following clasps Navy Service authorized, In this case including the France clasp? "The U.S. Navy issued similar service clasps to the Army for service in the following regions during the following periods: (Wikipedia) England (April 6, 1917 to November 11, 1918)France (April 6, 1917 to November 11, 1918)Italy (April 6, 1917 to November 11, 1918)Russia (November 12, 1918 to July 31, 1919)Siberia (November 12, 1918 to March 30, 1920)West Indies (April 6, 1917 to November 11, 1918)"thanks, Bosungus
  8. Hi Tim B, I have never purchased anything from him . The Victory medal I mentioned is not on E-Bay but on his web site. I was just curious as I have a collection of WW1 US Victory medals and never saw the France Navy clasp listed as authorized and synderstreasures has what appears to be an authentic aviation clasp coupled with a France bar. however I now thoroughly understand that the France clasp is clearly not authentic. I was interested because I know the Navy had clasps for Russia & Siberia. Thanks for the info. Bosungus
  9. Thanks for the information. I ask because i saw a WW1 US Navy Victory medal on Synderstreasures that had the Aviation & France bar yet I could not find any reference for the France authorization. http://snyderstreasures.com/pages/uswwivictorymedals.htm Would this be a later add on? Thanks, Bosungus
  10. Question: Did the US Navy issue a France clasp for WW1 US Victory medal? I noticed an Aviation clasp along with a France clasp on a WW1US Victory medal and wonder if the France was an authorized clasp. Thanks
  11. Thanks Tim B,dond & Gordon for taking the time to look these over. I appreciate your analysis and opinions and the opportunity to participate in the discussion. Bosungus
  12. Thanks Tim, There is nothing under the hinge. The finish on the reverse is smooth and spotted. I have attached one more image in an attempt to show the detail. Thanks for all your imput, great discussion. Bosungus
