Reuniting Broken Medal Groups

Recommended Posts

Looking for a Medal for Military Order of the Carabao #753. This was for Major Harry H. Bandholtz (22nd Infantry). I have the rest of his medals and orders. I also have his certificate for the Military Order of the Carabao, just missing the medal.

I am looking for medals that formally belonged to COL JOHN J. CHRISTY. I know his engraved Bronze Star along with a few other of his medals are out there somewhere.

 

I just acquired Col Christy's DSM (slot brooch, machine-engraved "John/J./Christy" in vertical format). Available at $450.

 

Regards,

Looking for any medals belonging to Joseph E. Willoughby. He was a lieutenant and was KIA over Germany, so there should be a purple heart that was sent to his wife Evelyn.

>>> UPDATED "Reuniting Broken Medal Groups" LIST;

 

 

 

Hello Guy's,

 

As I've been lucky enough to pick up a couple of the medals I was I seeking, I figured it was time to update "The List". So, here are some of the medals I'm currently looking for. If anyone has ANY information regarding the following medals, PLEASE contact me at: dpast32@aol.com. My primary interest here is to reunite these missing medals with their respective groups, but I will also consider parting with some of them to a fellow collector who happens to possess a greater portion of the group than I do. THANK YOU

 

 

 

Updated List: MARCH 10, 2011

 

 

1) WW2 PURPLE HEART MEDAL to: MAURICE A. VENNE ( MIA - KIA, Sept. / Oct. 1944 )

 

2) WW2 AIR MEDAL to: CHESTER L. MILLARD ( KIA, Dec. 11, 1944 )

 

3) PHILIPPINE CAMPAIGN SERVICE MEDAL, No. 19278 ( Awarded to: FRANK E. CUMMINGS )

 

4) SPANISH WAR SERVICE MEDAL, No. 7407 ( Awarded to: FRANK E. CUMMINGS )

 

5) SPANISH WAR SERVICE MEDAL, No. 10920 ( Awarded to: SAMSON ALMY )

 

6) SPANISH WAR SERVICE MEDAL, No. 433 ( Awarded to: HANS C. OWEN )

 

7) RHODE ISLAND MILITIA & NATL. GUARD MARKSMANSHIP MEDALS to: CHARLES H. LEDWARD

 

8) U.S. FEDERAL / MEXICAN BORDER SEVICE MEDAL ( MBSM ), No. 25655, awarded to Pvt. Harold B. SCHOTT, of Battery A, Field Artillery, Rhode Island National Guard

 

9) WW1 PURPLE HEART MEDAL to: GEORGE O. BRIGGS ( WIA on July 18, 1918, but possibly not awarded until Sept. 1958, as that's the date appearing on his official PHM certificate. )
