Eclectic Mix of Medals in Frames


Recommended Posts

Nice collection of medals, appears to be a mix of British, US, German, Japanese and French. Some of the British medals are named. I wish the Pour le Merite was original but I think that one is a repro!

Smaller frame. Not that a black light is the end all be all but the only one that glows is the French medal in the upper left with the white ribbon, probably a replacement.

That would be something if that was an early Indian Wars Medal?

 

A very interesting assembly presumably from a collector who had the occasional good eye.

 

The Blue Max if real is either a jewelers copy or Austrian made.

 

The fan that holds the suspension ring is usually what gives that away.

 

Better pictures would help when and if you can.

 

Look for markings because sometime back someone stamped Austrian fan medals with Godet marks.

Thanks for posting

Is the Marine Good Conduct Medal name engraved on the reverse?

Yes that is an Indian War medal. I started a separate discussion on it in particular in the medals section. I wish but no name on the Marine Corps medal.

Are the 3 WWI British Medals named to the same person?
