Is it common to have the thread attached to stop the medals from swinging around too much?

Check out this group guys!

Very nice and authentic one (IMHO of course :)) issued for Nomonhan Incident.

This time cavalier used the wire as attachement device for his medals!

I've seen many of these Nomonhan Border Incident bars colored like that - some medals too - were there actually TWO types of ribbons, or are these all just interesting fade/change patterns? The other bars there look pretty normal!

You see the white stripes looks "too pure white" for fading scenario...

Also I saw some pretty faded ribbons for this medal and they still have these two stripes in yellow ...

Maybe sometimes "they" (whoever they might be ... a different manufacturer?) just forgot to apply the last layer of light yellow paint ...

Yes, always with these white stripes! Very interesting. A legitimate variant? Hmmmm......

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
