  1. And one more I forgot: a picture he took of French women washing clothes in a stream
  2. A picture of Mr. and Mrs. Frank on his 74th birthday in 1965
  3. Memories that Mr. Frank dictated to his daughter of his service in France during The Great War
  4. Last plane to leave the Aerodrome during demobilization in 1919
  5. A picture of men of the 96th and Commanding Officers on horseback
  6. Pictures of accidents, and a funeral for a pilot who was killed
  7. Here is a medal group that I picked up a few months ago, fresh out of the woodwork. This Victory Medal was awarded to John Christian Frank, the son of German immigrants, who immigrated to the USA in the 1880s. Born in New York City in 1891, he graduated from Stuyvesant High School and later attended Cooper Union for Engineering. Mr. Frank joined the U.S. Army in August of 1917 and deployed to France aboard RMS Adriatic in October 1917 attached to the 96th Aero Squadron. He was transferred to the 1105th Aero Replacement Squadron, stationed at Clermont-Ferrand Aerodrome (40 miles from Vichy) in
  8. Thanks for the response. Too bad I wasn't on USMF a few years ago, because I would have taken them off your hands! 😜 I have noticed on auction sites that they don't come up often, generally just the ones made for sale to the general public. I am on a hunt to find official re-issue/late issue examples (HLP, EIGI, Graco, etc) that have the white thread on the edges of the ribbon.
  9. Hello everyone! I recently picked up a copy of Jim Michels phenomenal book on the WWI Victory Medal, and was wondering, what would be a good source to find the Type 3, 4, 5 or 6 medals? I have a few Type 2's, but would like to fill out my collection with the Late Issue pieces as well. What would be a fair (value) estimate for these? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, and hope you all have a nice New Years!
  10. Gap, I'm not sure about the ribbon part of the question, but any Swank manufactured Bronze Stars that I have encountered do indeed have the three small dots on the suspension. Hope this helps! - Daytonian
  11. I had a pleasant transaction with forum member Albert. He was very prompt in shipping the Air Force Cross, and it was carefully packed. I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation.
