Here is a recent trade . 81st division Peleliu island .

wwi type SS old privately engraved To Sgt who scaling a cliff under fire to take our enemy caves with satchel charges ! He also was commissioned a Lt at end of war.
there was a post on SS years ago and this was one of the stars mentioned to wwiii actions 

numbered 41339 

found pic on ancestry of him.

sadly he survived bloody Peleliu to die sitting at a red light in 1974.

 

I probably over paid in trade but how many Army Peleliu items do you see ?

any idea on how to get  glue residue off on ribbon and star ? or should i leave it ?

Nice medal!

 

I have had a great many types of glue on ribbons. I personally would leave it alone unless it is soft and you can peel it off with your fingernail. Never had any luck with removing glue that is hard without destroying the ribbon.

Look on the bright side, you could have a nice ribbon and............. 

 

It's painful just to look at this.   Rust never sleeps but foam kills.  Anybody thinking that once they get that crud off, everthing's gonna be Otay Mesa and wait for the patina to come back is fooling themselves.  Ribbon can be replaced, but this is forever.

I'd suggest dish soap, hot water and an old tooth brush. I've had reasonable success with this method. This method also tends to leave the patina.
