  2. Thank you very much to two great Forum friends, Beast and smwinter 👌🏻👌🏻 Being buried in Delaware County Pennsylvania makes sense he was in the 28th Keystone Division.
  3. Hello all, Here’s some pics of a new acquisition this week. I’m proud to be the new caretaker of this hero’s award. I found him on Find A Grave. Born in 1887, died 1973and interred in Delaware County Pennsylvania. With an obvious Italian name I was wondering if maybe he saw service in Italy during the Great War. Hoping some of my Forum friends may be able to pinpoint him 🤞🏼Thanks so much for any help forthcoming. Heart is numbered # 33694. Thanks so much, stay safe, Tom

  8. Hello all Forum friends, Well, as bad and horrible as this pandemic currently is, I have been able to acquire some very nice older campaign medals for my collection. But truth be told, I would and will much rather go back to pre Covid times even at the expense of all my new acquisitions. Soon I hope and pray. But I did pick up a nice Mexican Border Medal off eBay last week and have posted pics of it. Numbered #15911. And hope some of our fine fellow Forum friends can help put a name and/or regiment to the recipient. It came from a eBayer in Pennsylvania, but of course tha

  10. Hello all. Was going through my box of odds and ends this weekend and came across this medal. Spanish War Service Medal with rim #7676. No suspension ring, no ribbon, no brooch, just the planchette. Can’t for the life of me remember where or when I picked this up.🤔 LOL 😝 It’s a pain getting older 😡 Was hoping one of my fellow Forum friends could place a name and/or regiment to the medal. As always, thank you all so very much for any help that may be forthcoming. Happy Labor Day and continue staying safe and healthy. 🙏🏼 Best Regards, Tom P.S. Couldn’t get a good close up of the

  12. Hello all. This came in the mail today. A nice Army Service on the Mexican Border medal. With full wrap brooch and original ribbon. It is numbered 20787, and I am posting here to see if any of my fellow friends and collectors here may be able to put a name and/or regiment this hero from long ago served in. It would be an added bonus if this gentleman was a fellow New Yorker. Thank you all for any help that y’all might provide. It is greatly appreciated as I have been fortunate enough in the past to name some other medals, courtesy of the fine and wonderful fellow collector friends here
  13. They are far and away the best of friends and the best at helping out fellow collectors as we. I’ve learned so much from them and I try to “pay it forward” with any help I too cam offer. These came from a friend in trade. I gave him “dead President’s” LOL 😉
  14. Again Jeff, thank you so very much for helping me put the service regiments this hero served with during his honorable military service. Fellow collectors and friends such as you make this hobby so enjoyable. Tom
