  1. The copper full wrap brooch medals with an open catch that are commonly mislabeled as Studleys were made by Northern Stamping in the late 1930’s-1940’s. Most ALL original studley medals have a sewn in brooch with an open catch, similar to the PA-NG Mexico Border & WWI medals. The early quality studley medals are recognizable by their thickness, bail ring size, & ribbon ring thickness. They also have a unique finish.
  2. A U.S. mint contract Indian Wars medal will have a cut in the bail planchette ring. I do not see a cut in this ring on top of the numbering being off.
  3. Here is the Silver Star card from the AAF award cards from the National Archives. I could not find the card for his Distinguished Service Cross.
  4. the GO is for the Silver Star. There is no mention of a SS in his file. And only the 1 mention of the DSC as posted above.
  5. I bought lots of these in the 15,xxx & 16,xxx range on eBay years ago. All unissued.
  6. His file was burned in the Archives fire, Geoff of GoldenArrow Research got a partial file. This pay sheet shows the DSC.
  7. I have a Distinguished Service Cross that was issued to 1st Lt. Clyd P. Sullivan. It was an upgraded award from the SS citation. General Order #243 10-10-1945. This DSC is not on the website.
  8. Thanks for posting the photo of the medal Mike. Only the second I’ve seen to date that was engraved.
  9. Mr. Fout is attempting to recover his lost military career belongings. If whoever had This group is willing to part with it back to him, that would be amazing.
  10. Great pick up. I’ve never seen a Soochow & Yangtze to the same sailor. Thanks for sharing Gerald.
  11. I am still looking for a early rim engraved Navy Reserve Faithful Service Medal, has anyone ever seen one before? I have seen a reverse engraved example on the forum before, but that’s the only engraved piece I know of. I presume that when this medal was first issued many of the old salts who knew about rim engraving might have had their medals engraved. Another Service medal that I have not seen engraved along the rim is a WWI Occupation of Germany medal. Issued in 1945 so the chances are slim to non but there’s always a chance? Here is a photo of the engraved Navy Campaign & Service medals from the Civil War through WWII that I am the caretaker of.
  12. I wouldn’t say it’s common to find the thicker type AAC DFC’s. I also wouldn’t say they are rare. Not sure who the maker was either. wish I had more information for you.
