  1. I have been interested in the Identification Badge of the Tomb of the Unknown. I am very interested in all information this thread might offer for my learning experience as well. The is a picture of the fronts of the badges I have in my collection.

  3. Second picture, top right. 23rd Quartermaster Regiment, I think.
  4. WOW !!! What an incredible treasure, for sure. Thank you for sharing this.
  5. I am trying to locate a source for an embroidered petty officer rank insignia to go onto a Navy Digital Blue cover. I am not concerned with the specific rank; whether it be PO3, PO2, or PO1. Is there anyone who can direct me to a source where I can acquire such an insignia? Best regards, Marko The picture shows the type of rank insignia I am looking for and how I intend to display it. I already have a cover. Just need the rank patch.
  6. Thank you all for your most valuable input. From what I am discerning, the drape medal with the Commander device is most likely an award to a foreign recipient. I appreciate the quick and valuable replies. Best regards, Marko
  7. I found this medal in a group of individual medals for sale; elsewhere here on the internet. It is a Legion of Merit drape medal with the same device worn on the Legion of Merit - Commander grade ribbon bar. I have been a collector since the late '60s (off and on) and I have never seen this combination of medal and device ever used. Subsequently, I can find no reference ever allowing this combination to be used. But, I am an imperfect being and am not omniscient. Has anyone ever seen this combination of medal and device ever used? Does anyone know if this IS an approved combination of medal and device? Thanks to all who contribute. This is really puzzling me, and puzzles are meant to be solved. Best regards, Marko
  8. I have bought a bunch of things from crazyzac over the last year. I feel vey pleased with everything I have gotten from him. The patches I have gotten from him are exactly as I expected and are exactly the same as those gotten from friends currently serving. Metal insignia and medals make up my dealings with him and I look forward to dealing with him again. I certainly appreciate this dialog and have learned some good things along the way.
  9. Sorry for the delay. Here are pics of the creased ribbon on a medal.
  10. Hello all, I have a bit of a conundrum. I have a few medals in my collection that have very firm creases in their ribbon drapes, I presume are the result of being stored for extended periods of time. My question I would like to ask others to field is: Is there a safe way to iron out the folds, or should I replace them completely?. Additionally, and as a follow-up question: I have a medal (very old) which has a ribbon drape that is disintegrating. Is there a benefit to preserve it as it is? And, if so, how best should I preserve it? Side note: Please be assured, I store all medals flat in clean Riker Mounts.
  11. Michael Rolf, Thank you for all your effort and diligence. It is most appreciated; by many more than me, I am sure. Thanks again, Marko
  12. I have just discovered the web page http://www.scribd.com/doc/67093643/Mottos-A-Z has been deleted. If someone has any online links to a motto list, I am sure there are many folks here who would appreciate the additional information. Best regards, Marko
