Early USMC Navy Cross medal group on ebay https://www.ebay.com/itm/384398170235?hash=item597fea987b:g:UkkAAOSwCeBhQ1M2 .

I wasn't going to post it but as you can see by the price it shot to, it looks like "the cat is out of the bag".

They are also selling the matching mini medal bar to it https://www.ebay.com/itm/384398175440?hash=item597feaacd0:g:9kUAAOSwntxhQ1TY .

Looks like a nice set. I'm sure the experts will chime in.

It’s identified as well with other auctions that includes paperwork with the Marines name.

Award citation doesn't seem all that exciting

LOL, you got me on that one Ken.

 

As I've said before, whenever somebody posts a three-hanky weeper about someone linking an eBay auction:  There may be a cat, but there was never a bag.

 

If it's on eBay, all eyes are on it.

 

I think you should bid to win...  ;)

I just happened to check on these two auctions as they were ending. Full size medals went for $5,620.00 and mini's went for $860.00. Different bidders.

I was glued to them but had to bow out at some point. I knew I’d not be the champion on both so why try to split it up by winning one of them which ended up happening anyway
