Victory Medal & Ribbon BARS - Full Size & Mini's


Recommended Posts

Have a medal or ribbon bar that includes a Victory Medal?  Let's use this topic to cover those full or miniature bars of interest.  Nothing says you can't show/discuss it under the appropriate country heading as well, just a place for those looking at bars specifically.

Enjoy!

Above is Tim's post starting this new topic, edited to specify that the bar can be from any country but has to include/feature a Victory Medal or ribbon. Thanks!

Full-sized group to an RA Brigadier General with a US DSM.

A unique group to the British Army that used to be in my collection (unfortunately I never made a color photo of it):

Ignore the photo included in this post it was actually posted in a separate post but replaced the photo I had initially posted.  This forum has the worst setup for posting photos that I have ever encountered.  If you follow a post with an additional post it removes the photo in the first post and replaces it with the photo for the second post.  Guess I will just have to stop posting photos on this site.

Lambert,

That's a great looking bar and some of those medals are quite rare in and of themselves, let alone on a mini bar!  Congrats my friend, really nice! :beer:

Peron,

I don't see any picture here?

 

Gunner,

Yes, I too have noticed some posting issues of recent as well, not with adding attachments so much, for me links do not post correctly and instead once the link is added to the draft block, it changes to a copy of the actual post.  Example:

 

Here's a sharp mini that recently ended on auction for 360. eu.  I previously posted this in the British section of Vic's and also in the Russian Imperial section on mini medals.

Can't be too many bars with a Military Cross and Russian St Anna.

Had to be an officer (Captain or below) or Warrant Officer during WW1 and specifically for bravery as it was a gallantry type award.  The St Anna Order shown is for distinguished civil service (swords for military service), so maybe a guy that help Russia in some capacity?  One would think this bar could be traced back to a known recipient.

Great bar but I can only imagine the price had it been full size!

Enjoy! :cheers:

Tim

Tim,

Actually more than you think, if you add the gazetted awards to the intervention awards (many of which were not gazetted) there are many 10s of similar awards (and don't forget that group could be an RAF man who got the MC while serving with the RFC or RNAS prior to April 1918).

Hi Paul,

Yes, Gunner had commented in the British section where he added another example (w/swords) and gave a pretty good explanation on what happened in these cases, not only Russia.

Thank you!

Not sure if anyone is watching this auction that ends in a couple days?  Normally, I would wait until after it ends to post comments about it but have some concerns with other items listed here and thought I better comment in case someone here has their sites set on it.

Supposedly, a mini-bar attributed to Marine Corps LtG. Karl Day.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/US-Mini-Medals-WWl-WWll-Lieutenant-General-Karl-S-Day-US-Marine-Corps-/351555771479?hash=item51da5b5c57:g:JhoAAOSwT5tWJnkY

Not sure how knowledgeable the seller is here but another bar listed gives me some concerns and I know the bronze Antarctica Expedition Medal is fake, despite coming from someone's "museum" collection.  There were only 160 medals awarded (60 gold ; 50 silver; 50 bronze) before the medal was abolished.  If you look at the ribbon brooch and sew job, it looks period but the strike is that of a known reproduction.  The seller knows this and has just relisted the item without disclosing that information.  Not a good sign IMO.

Anyway, the mini looks sharp, if original, just do the homework beforehand.

Hi Tim  

It's a very good group ..

There is another sale in an Auction House. simply fabulous

"The exceedingly rare cased Japanese Medal of Merit of the Imperial Aviation Society of Japan in Gold, as awarded to Major and Lieutenant Commander B.F. Fowler A.F.C., Royal Naval Air Service and Royal Air Force, who flew as a seaplane pilot during the Great War, as one of the 30 aviators selected to instruct the fledgling Japanese Air Force in the early 1920’s. Together with recipient’s miniature medals including the Air Force Cross and the Japanese Order of the Rising Sun, 4th Class."

Good morning Lambert!

Very nice! I never really got into mini's per se but have seen some really nice examples over the years that I now would have liked to have had.

Here's another full size bar that I missed out on sometime back.  Was nice in that it had the New York state issued medals for WW1 and Mexican Border Service.

Hi Lambert,

That is a fantastic miniature group and is still in such good condition.  It is a real treat to see such gems of groups.  I always believe that the quality and workmanship on such period miniatures is far and away better than anything comparable or current miniature medals.

Thanks for posting.

Regards,

Rob

    • 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.
