WW1 Distinguished Service Cross numbered in unmarked case

Recommended Posts

The ribbon bar with the wide white stripe is the early (WW1 era) version but the medal is a later version so I would say this is a put together setup. Still some GREAT parts though! But don't feel bad if you break them up into case, medal, ribbon bars.


Titled case set "U.S. Typhus Commission";

Titled case "Medal for Merit";

ASMIC: 1677

OMSA: 6045

thanks! what medals would be correct for this case? I was trying to figure out what the writing on the back of the single ribbon bar stood for.


That Ribbon Bar is a French Made Private Purchase.


"Bte S.G.D.G." is an abbreviation for a typical phrase concerning products from France. "Bte" is short for "breveté" (="patented") and " S.G.D.G." stands for "Sans Garantie Du Gouvernement" (="without government guarantee")


And the DSC is a Reribboned Original Strike Planchet & Ring it appears, with what looks to be a Victory Medal Brooch...
