Presidential Unit Citation

Recommended Posts

A Presidential Unit Citation ribbon, it's all one piece, not a separate frame, with a space in the middle for a device?

Has anyone seen one of these? U.S. made or foreign? No markings.

That is rather cool! I wonder where it was made/manufactured (US vs theater-made). The holes are definitely for an OLC. Thanks for sharing!

I never saw one like it. Given some of the postwar German made items I have seen, I suspect that was the origin.

I have seen an all metal one before but it was not as nice as this piece. The slot is definately for an OLC.

There is a set of painted all metal ribbons like this at the Gettysburg Quartermaster militaria shop in Gettysburg, PA - they have it labeled as a POW produced item, but I'd suspect more like Gil says...Postwar german manufacture, akin to the plastic / glass ribbon bars, locally made during occupation era. Still very neat, and quite scarce.

Maybe my eyes are playing tricks on me, but it sure looks like there is some text in the circled area...

 

I defintely see what you have circled, I've tried looking at it with my little mag lite since just looking at it with the overhead lights just makes shadows, all I can see with the naked eye is just what looks like solder around the pins, but I'll keep trying.

I wonder if they made these with no holes, two holes, etc.?

 

Very interesting piece, it reminds me of those aluminum para ovals.

Here's another one, one of several on German eBay right now, 1950's Deutsche Herstellung or German Manufactuer, just go into German eBay and search CITATION.
