I'm looking for the DFC awarded to Royal A. Veatch, I believe it was sold through eBay in 2007. I just purchased his Air Medal and would like to reunite the two.

Looking for the named Bronze Star Medal to Clarence W. Richmond. It was sold at the 2011 Show of Shows. The seller sold his named Bronze Star to a buyer shortly before I purchased his named Legion of Merit medal. I would love to put the two decorations back together again.

 

If you have it, please contact me.

I have this photo of the Veatch DFC, which you have probably seen. I thought it sold more recently than 2007.

Thanks Randy! You are correct, this has sold at least twice since 2007. I have been in contact with the last couple of owners and am still on the hunt!

 

Thanks again,

Although I didn’t make a post about it on this thread, someone from the forum alerted me to the sale of a pair of dogtags; helping me reunite them with the medal.

2 weeks ago an antique dealer called me and said he had medals.

 

Purchased a named British WW 1 Trio and US Air Corps group to keep them from being broken up.

I'm looking for this grouping belonging to Ernest A. Rehberg of Queens New York who served with the 8th Air Force. His uniform and other pieces of his items came into my collection and while doing research found that at some point via eBay, the group was split in two. I am looking for this grouping of decorations and items of Rehberg which were sold by George Harris from Alfred New York who is evidently very well known. Any info of the current or past owners or whereabouts of this grouping is appreciated!

 

If in need of more info a quick google search of "Ernest A Rehberg WW2" will lead you straight to Worthpoint, where i found these images and it's eBay listing

Thought I might post this here . . . Looking for my Grampa's USCG Commendation MEdal (from the 1960s). His medal rack is missing that one medal. Glenn Peterson was his name, and I think at the time he got it he was a Chief Petty Officer!
