I recently acquired a WWI Distinguished Service Cross that is numbered 5181. Can anyone tell me if this medal is traceable? Any help is appreciated!

I believe that it falls between the cracks: From Forum Member AdamR's Web Site

WWI Distinguished Service Cross #1 to #3782 (aprox. 2430 numbers), #5501 to #8000 (all)

But you never know someone some day may find a list in the archives.

As John said...not a recorded number in the DSC books.

I had a feeling that it was not going to be in the traceable range, but thanks anyway for looking it up.
