So, i have had success with Craigslist once again. I located a very nice medal grouping belonging to a Lt. Commander. it includes campaign medals, marksman medal, victory medal, and a good conduct medal. i paid $45 for the lot. when i came in the mail i found a little bag of misc items and 2 ribbons from 1923. 3 of the medals came in blue boxes and a customs box came with a USN discharge pin. tell me what you guys think of this awesome grouping! :thumbsup: thanks

This looks to be a normal PTO enlisted group - almost exactly as my grandfather's group.

 

It is a nice group of medals!

I do not profess to be a militaria expert, but I conduct as much research as I am capable of and then write about my findings.
Check out my blogs, The Veteran's Collection (general militaria) and Chevrons and Diamonds (military baseball)
