I know and I am very happy from this Ribbon Bar! Particulary that it has managed to buy me to Poland.

Very nice, I wondered who won that as I was watching it myself! Good pickup.

Thanks, Schottzie! :) The only drawback is that the mini Air Medal is missing its planchet, but otherwise they're in great shape. I was really pleased with this particular purchase since I'd never been able to get a set of ribbons along with their dress miniatures before.

Huh! I thought I posted these a couple minutes ago but guess I did something wrong as they did not appear. Oh, well, I'll try it again.


Here are two custom Navy ribbons. They are attached to two uniforms from the same sailor that I picked up last week. I posted pictures of the uniforms on the acquisitions section last week, including pix of the ribbons but not as close-up as these.

Hi guys,


This corner is just for me.... I am mainly ribbon bars collector and hopfully I have some interesting pieces for you guys to share.


Not much now - I got my first States bars just last year but I love them all :w00t:


Here is the first one.


This one belonged to the WW2 and Korea war vet, who probably continued his service in Europe.

One of the rarest sets what I have is the first one...

American Officers were awarded the Order of the Bath

Nice and interesting awards;


Ribbon with the GOLD star- missing one gold star- Cuban Purification (1906-1909), Am. Def- EAME camp.


WW1 vict. Dominican Camp. ( 1916) and 2nd Nicaraguan Camp. ( 1926-1933), last ribbon is some kind a foreign award and it is missing rosette.


If anyone can help me with the research of this set, please let me know. ;) I have very limited US reference materials and because I collect bars Globally, I am not familiar, how I can let this set researched.
