Where can I find/buy/have made replicas of WW1 or WW2 foreign ribbons?

Recommended Posts

I thought I remembered a post on this website about someone who had General MacArthur's or Gen Patton's ribbon rack reproduced? I collect ribbon bars of US and Foreign-issued to US military personnel and I am trying to find old ribbon bars with rosettes and devices, etc. like those on MacArthur's uniform which are extremely difficult to find! It's like finding a needle in a haystack. Also Vietnam ribbon bars with rosettes and Korean ribbons issued to senior ranking military personnel.

 

I just saw a French Legion of Honor (Grand-Croix) [image below] pop-up on eBay and it sold before I could hit the buy now button. Thanks!

Off the top of my head I can't remember but there was someone on Ebay that used to list lots of rosettes

The OMSA Ribbon Bank typically has most foreign ribbons that you could want. 

 

There are also several sellers on eBay that often stock extensive foreign ribbon - you just have to search for them (there are three or four who routinely have stuff).

 

As far as the rosettes for the ribbons, those are tough to find without finding the vintage ribbons themselves. I once stumbled upon a small box of WW1 to WW2 French ribbon material, rosettes, palms and the like in a small militaria shop in the south of France. That was 18 years ago...I still kick myself for not buying the box.
