This is just a mounted mini group, but still cool nevertheless...

Also not mine (though I have handled them - I have the rest of his stuff)...the medals to Rear Admiral Robert Copeland, the CO of the Samuel B Roberts at the Battle off Samar...

This group was a very early eBay save...it was being split up and sold with no ID. I was able to reach back to the relative who gave it to the consignment shop and got enough clues to pin down the recipient. I remember it was a lot of legwork! Gorgeous group though!

One of the cooler groups with a US award to a foreigner. There's a thread on here about this...I think was Hermanus who helped me find the recipient.

Here's one that makes my eyes bleed. Yes, the guy who mounted them did keep the original drapes, so I restored the group. Still....ooof....

Another eye-bleeder. Ironically, when I sold this group, no one cared about the Chinese award. It was a "whatever...no additional value" to the group. Those were the days... 😭

The recipient was OSS in Indochina during WW2. He went by "Tom". Anyone recognize the guy next to him? 🙃

I forgot I had another eye-bleeder. Again, the collector did keep the original drapes, which was good. This was a great group - Emerson Dubuque.

This one wasn't mine, but I did scan it when I visited the veteran for my original JOMSA article about Soviet awards to the US military. These belonged to Colonel John Wohner.

Okay, completely unabashed...these aren't mine, they're at the National Museum of the Marine Corps, but they are far too cool not to share. Unfortunately, I was running out of time when I got to this drawer and the best I could do was iPhone photos. But still...whoa...literally the holy grails of mounted medals...

Amazing groups!

Do you know the recipient of this group:

And maybe the Ulchi number?

Regards

Sampo

 

I unfortunately didn't have time to photograph the reverses of the groups, so I don't  have the medal numbers. However, the group belonged to General Robert O. Bare.
