Very interesting MINIATURE Navy Cross WWII period Ribbon Bar
I picked this up because I knew it was 1946ish with the Purple Heart construction. The ribbons are a bit worn but I love the old look.
Your thoughts on if I should restore the ribbons or not?
Just leave it?
Perhaps I could reverse the existing ribbons which seem to have aged very well?
I have a 1940s roll of Navy Cross miniature ribbon (which is very hard to find) and perhaps all of them. So it is likely I can restore to original condition.
Too bad there isn't a few more unique award to help identify him. Just for fun I am searching my database to find USN/USMC officers who was awarded the Navy Cross and Silver Star during WWII, no WWI service and was wounded... found quite a few. Perhaps his wounds knocked him out of the service?
