Recommended Posts

This was in Jack's Son's collection and is now in mine. The Sampson box was lost over time but the rest is all here.

This is the carbon copy of the transmittal letter for the West Indies medal. (Note that the Navy considered the West Indies and Spanish Campaign Medal as one in the same and referred to both as the "Spanish Campaign Badge".) This carbon copy is part of National Archives Record Group 24 in Washington, DC.

Use caution when using a felt lined case for long term storage. I once had a pristine WWII Navy Cross stored in a small felt lined case and after a year the gilt finish on the reverse was gone! The obverse was still perfect but the reverse was stripped to bare metal.

It will be that 1.) the felt is rough and 2.) normal felt is made from recycled soda bottles. So all the junk in the plastic as well as the roughness of the fibres will be rubbing on the medal. If you have JoAnn Fabric stores . . . go and ask for their wool/rayon felt. It is $10-13 a yard, but way better. Bring it home and soak it in soapy water until the soap suds remain in the bowl after five minutes (that gets the formaldehyde off the fabric (as formaldehyde is what sizing is on any fabric). DON'T agitate it or put it in the dryer! Let it hang dry in your house somewhere, and then iron it by using a medium iron with a cotton/ or linen towel or cloth in between the felt and the iron. You can spray the towel, and the dampness helps get big wrinkles out). The wool/rayon will be much better on the medals and metal finishes!
