  1. Hello Jeffro, Thank you for your response and information. I’m not sure you’d still want this example as it’s a bit of a restoration. I sacrificed what was left of the outer rim to get the felt needed to repair the mothing. However, It did turn out much more presentable. Here’s some before and after shots.
  2. Based on construction or the marking on the reverse, is anyone able to identify the maker of this patch? I’d grateful for any assistance. Robert
  3. I’m still after a VF-831 Squadron Patch (the slightly earlier version of this one) but after 11 years of looking nearly daily I was finally able to find and acquire a period VF-153 patch. I couldn’t be more pleased. This one is embroidered on felt.
  4. Yet another question about WW1 service and authorized clasps. I have another Great Grandfather that Served in the Aviation Section of the Signal Corps as a Corporal/Chauffeur in the 101st Photo Section for the Second Corps Aeronautical School in Chatillon-Sur-Seine, France. Am I correct in assuming in this capacity, he would be authorized only the France Clasp on his Victory Medal?
  5. Thank you very much! I GREATLY appreciate your assistance!
  6. Very cool information. Thank you guys for taking the time to post! I have a Great Grandfather that was a Sergeant in Company D of the 58th Infantry Regiment, 4th Division in WW1. Do any of you know the clasps he may be entitled to wear? Rob
  7. Ah, that makes sense. It’s an eBay special. I just ran across the cord and haven’t seen one on a medal before. Great info, as always. Thanks! https://www.ebay.com/itm/293352783885?ViewItem=&item=293352783885 Rob
  8. Thank you for the info! The reverse, for those with interest. Rob
  9. I’ve never run across this before. Were these awarded this way or is this a vet modification? Thanks! Rob
  10. An authentic example, IMO. Very nice gift. Rob.
