I would bet money that belonged to a destroyer or destroyer escort commanding officer. Just too bad we will never know who...

I love seeing mounted groups and would love to see some from members collections. My camera is down but when its up I will add some from my collection.

 

Until then here are my two favorite mounted medal groups of all time they are NOT in my possesion but they are really cool an they both have US awards so they should be okay for this forum mods if they are not then please remove them.

I don't know a lot about foreign medals so, I am wondering how anyone could wear the bottom medal group on a uniform.

Yes...quite a bit...it's part of a grouping I'll be doing a write up on when I get the time to scan everything and write it up, like with the Gonzalez group

Group to Capt. William Seaman (Medical Corps), USN. All three campaign medals are original rim numbered BB&B strikes. Capt. Seaman died on active duty in 1929.

Beautiful medal bar Adam, I really like the earlier bar mounted groups.

I posted this group a while back but I figured I would pull them out again. This is the funkiest mounted group I have ever seen. It looks like a British collector decided to get them loose mounted and I am sure it cost him a fortune to do it too! It is a group to Edward Braham who was a Marine on the USS Arizona at Pearl Harbor. He obviously survived and retired as a MSgt in the USAF in 1969. The reverse of the medals are named, probably privately. They do look beautiful, though.

This a bar mounted WWI Navy Cross and Sampson Medal group that I used to own. (It's now in a friend's collection.) The recipient was Capt. Roscoe C. Moody, USN.
