I tell you, the more worn awards are starting to appeal to me more and more. Minty stuff only gets you so far, but used stuff has the connection to history. It's easy to mistake an item for being mistreated since the war when you're shopping for condition, but in reality it was there for it and shows its life. I think you hit the sweet spot on this one Ralph!
