HERE IS A SUPER RARE NUMBERED M. NO 1069, US MARINE CORP ORIGINAL ISSUED YANGTZE SERVICE MEDAL There where very few of these awarded to Marines. It has the old clasp and ribbon and did not glow. Medal is in good shape for almost a 100 years old. Please look over and ask questions as we know this is a rare and valuable piece for any collector to have. Some folks just don’t appreciate history and preserving it for us collectors. With what little research I could do, all I could find was one m. 1052 was issued to a marine corp Colonel on who served on the USS HENDERSON AIRCRAFT SQUADRON in 1927. A list of the marines in the squadron would most likely help getting closer to the Marines name. Some more digging should come up with him.

Rare 1915 Pre Ww1 Era Usn Excellence Gunnery Medal Uss Georgia Named Solid Gold

Rare 1915 Pre Ww1 Era Usn Excellence Gunnery Medal Uss Georgia Named Solid Gold

Rare original United States Navy Excellence in Gunnery medal in gold. HANCOCK in period engraving. Measures approximately 1 1/4 in diameter. The grand total weight, including medal, ribbon and pin back brooch is 16.4 grams. Not marked to gold content, but tests at 10k. There is an enameled E on the face. Reverse reads, To J. Hancock First Division of the U. Georgia in Memory of Lt. The ribbon and suspension are probably replacements since the catch is a barrel catch, and I don’t think those were around in 1915. Minor wear and storage marks. There is a little notch on the reverse of the medal at 4 oclock (see scan). This is a hobby not a living, so I try to keep it fun, otherwise why do it. _gsrx_vers_632 GS 6.9.8 (632).

RARE PILLOWBACK GERMAN WW1 IRON CROSS 1st CLASS FOR BRAVERY MEDAL BADGE

Offered is an original German First World War’Pillow back’ Iron Cross 1st Class. 43 mm wide, silver metal cross’vaulted’ pattée with a blackened cross pattée (some service wear to face) within a hatched border imposed; the face with a central W (for Wilhelm), a crown above, the date 1914 below; the reverse with a pin for wear to uniform, with the original uniform hooks removed. The reinforced’pillow’ section still show remains of the silver wash. The cross is a good original piece, being a very rarely seen variety, being the first I have come across in a number of years. The Iron Cross was instituted on 10 March 1813 by King Friedrich Wilhelm III of Prussia during the War of Liberation against the Napoleonic French forces. It is awarded for bravery. In spite of its iconic image and fame, it has always been made of modest materials and issued in relatively large numbers. It was designed by the neo-classical architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel and reflects the cross of the Teutonic Knights in the late Middle Ages which was also the emblem of Frederick the Great.
