Kurt,

Thank you for clarifying. I was confused about the discussion regarding the medals.

 

However, is there are way to prove this was 100% done by the veteran or is this just how it appears?

Given that the Purple Heart, the Victoria Cross, and the Military Merit medal are all "jeweler" engraved to the same guy, and the dog tags match, not to mention the same wear/age to the medals, makes me assume that they were done by someone previous to the seller who was attempting to be something he wasn't.

Correct. It was someone previous to the current seller but we don't know exactly WHO it was. It could have been the veteran or it could have been someone else entirely.

I don't have one of the old Studley catalogs. It would be interesting if he had these listed for sale.

 

Here is what they look like:
