Silver Star in the for sale section.


Recommended Posts

I took a look at the engraving on the reverse of this medal and find it to be sloppy and not like any official hand engraving that I have seen. Thoughts? Not sure if this belongs in this section or not. I didn't want to step on the sales post.

I'm sure they're talking about the D-Day Silver Star.

 

That medal aside, I wish any high end medals would first be posted in the medal discussion section first so that we can all learn about engraving styles and hear from trusted members. Once a piece is vetted this way, it becomes much easier to sell at a later date. Just a thought.

"I have only two men out of my company and 20 out of some other company. We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold." (Message sent by 1st Lt. Clifton B. Cates. USMC, 96th Co., Soissons, 19 July 1918 - later 19th Commandant of the Marine Corps 1948-1952)
