These are my favorites of the lapel buttons I am beginning to get into...

 

1. Army/Navy combo DSM, looks like could be gold, but no matter...the combo is unique and it is just eye catching to me

 

2. Brevet Medal, found at ASMIC in a box...

Very nice! I have never seen a lapel ribbon device with two different ribbons.

 

Thanks for showing these...Kat

Very nice, thanks for sharing.  I've seen enameled ribbon sets before, but not like the one you've posted.

Thanks everyone, it is the one piece that got me interested in lapel buttons for more than just filling out WW II medal sets....I have seen other similar but not this set up and not this quality. I was on the fence a while on it, but it kept calling me to take it home....so I did. 

 

The Brevet, just got lucky....closest thing I will come to the medal is this lapel button.

What's the rear of the Brevet look like? Even the lapel rosettes are highly reproduced, my reproduction is marked 'Made in France' and 'VB Paris' and shaped exactly as yours

Yup...repro, same type you see regularly on eBay in the sets. Still a nice representative piece, hope you didn't pay too much though

I might have paid $1 so I'm ok with it
What's the timeframe on these?

They're still churning them out, identical, so hard to date any specific piece

Interesting. My girl found this in the dollar box at ASMIC couple years ago, looked older so at $1 what the hell. Either way like you say it's a nice filler and certainly unique enough to spark conversation.
