US Mexican Border Service Medal Serial number # 24822


Recommended Posts

As part of a WWI and Mexican Border Service grouping the pictured Mexican Border Service Medal was recently sold on Ebay and a concern was raised by the buyer as to if the planchet on the medal was the correct issue as the serial number's last two digits were crooked. Can someone who is more familar with this medal than I look at the pictures and tell if this is a good planchet or a replacement? Thanks. Tom Schultz

Looks fine to me. #24822 was issued to Otis R CLARK Bugler D/1st Inf NH NG (New Hampshire National Guard).

The three best things in life are a good landing, a good orgasm, and a good bowel movement.

A night carrier landing is one of the few opportunities to experience all three at the same time.

Where did you obtain the information of who the medal was issued to? I have a relative who served in the Mexican Border Campaign and would like to look up the information.

Kathy,

I looked up the medal number on the medal rolls published by Plancet Press. PM me the number or information and I'll look it up for you.

Just wanted to add a comment.

It is not unusal to have a number or two not centered, or stamped irregularly. These were hand stamped, therefore subject to human error.

 

 

Question - which number placement with you found most often on the MBS medal, or might you find all three? I do know that all the numbers were hand stamped. Thanks, I am new to MBS and thinking its about time to maybe purchase one.
