1/2" WW2 USMC USN pattern fat style ribbon bar.

cloth ---and mounted on pinback slider mount.

non flap hinge type on the pinback hinge....so NOT UK or commonwealth.

 

don't think its foreign....but searched in my huge library of reference books....could not

find anything remotely close.

pretty sure its US....but????

 

any help would be appreciated.

i know this belongs in the IDENTIFICATION HELP forum thread.....but seems

quicker with the medal-ribbon collectors looking here

Burma Star has orange stripes not yellow, also the blue stripes are darker. might be California National Guard Medal of Valor.

It does look like the Burma Star...BUT as mentioned above the colors and dimensions are not quite accurate.  I'd also add that the British/Commonwealth ribbons are normally coarser weave with a  'scalloped' edge and would be shorter than 1 3/8".

 

I agree the ribbon is probably for the CANG Medal of Valor.  The colors and dimensions match.
