    sorry guys its one thing i know nothing about
    Hi Nick,

    That type of pin was used from Imperial times thru and probably after WWII in Germany, and can be found on everything from tinnies to day badges to medal award ribbons. I once even had an Iron Cross 2nd class from WWI that had been field modified by cutting the ring off of the top and soldering one of these type pins on the reverse in the vertical position.

    Hi Nick, that is correct. These will be post war produced in Germany for the US Army. But they are quite desirable in their own right because of this.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Nick, they look like good additions to your ever expanding US collection. I recognise most of them. But the USN/USMC medals I am not familiar with? Are these good conduct medals?

    Cheers, Ade.
