I got this at an auction. It should be here tomorrow so I can research the Private whose it was.

Does anyone.recognize the 3 ribbon bars and why one has 3 metal.stars?

I will post more photos when I receive it hopefully tomorrow.

Ribbon bars: USMC Good Conduct, Asia-Pacific Theater and American Defense. Why 3 stars? Credited for 3 campaigns. Why only a Private?




I "primarily" collect Gulf War 1 patches. All branches (USA, USAF,USN, USMC & USCG) and ALL Countries..
US - Op.'s Desert Shield / Storm / Provide Comfort /Some Southern Watch - F-4G's Wild Weasels
UK - Op.'s Granby / Sabre / Warden
Canadian - Op. Desert Storm / Op. Friction

Looking for the oddities, including unfinished & flaws

I looked up the Marine. Donald R. Nance Junior. He served in the late 50s. The ribbons have been added on to the jacket as he wouldn't have earned any of them during his service.


It is a very nice grouping though! I am interested in the ribbons if you decide to part with them.


Good luck with your grouping and great find!
