Greetings,
Does anyone have any idea how many of these Army DSC's were made by the French?
Thanks,
Vince

The true test comes to us all, though rarely at the time or in the manner we would choose. So keep your powder dry, watch your 6 & Stand Fast!

Vince,

What you have posted is a WWI 1st Type DSC produced in France in 1918 for the AEF. There there is no known list about the number ordered and issued by the AEF. This information is from a JOMSA article from March-April 2015, by Charles P. McDowell: The First-Type Army Distinguished Service Cross: The “Back Story,” Journal of the Orders and Medals Society of America, Volume 66, Number 2.

Thanks John,

I will have to try to purchase that back copy from OMSA. I figured that was the answer and no one has any idea about numbers produced/issued but it never hurts to ask!

Happy Hunting,

Vince

Vince,

If you join OMSA, you can access digital copies of quarterly magazines. I had seen the original article but could not locate my hard copy of it, so I signed in and started looking. If you are not an OMSA member, you owe it to yourself to join. Just access to the old copies of the magazine is worth the price of membership. However, the wealth of information and background on all world orders is genuinely fantastic.

John
