Hi!
Had this for a long time in the collection...still can't get a good shot of it because of the glass and camera flash, but it's really nice. Have seen a lot of neat displays like this -- anyone has them, please post.

This one's nice because it even has the Brevet medal. I'd heard that a company in australia began selling these back in the 70 / 80s.

I have one identical to yours.

Nice items for a collection, as they have all the major medals right there, even if they are minis, and even if they are all newer made, at least I think so.

At one time I also owned one of these but with Army medals, and without the MoH in it. I suspect that was a later made version and that the ones with the MoH are earlier made.

I have also seen these for the Army, with the MoH, but have never seen or heard of one for the Air Force - anyone know if that exists?

Does anyone know for sure who made these or contact info for rhe makers, or anything? I too had heard the Australia story before. The American Legion post I am a member of has nothing like this, no displays, etc, I would LOVE to be able to purchase these displays, the USN / USMC, Army, and Air Force ones, for my Post and donate them, for mounting on the walls, even if it did not include the MoH.

My small town had a Civil War MoH recipient, so it would be major awesome to have a replica MoH from the Civil War to be able to nicely frame up and display too!
