    hey Will,..hope you didn't get too cold up there ...what do you mean by display board?
    Bronk,

    During the war, retail distributors for awards had display boards to show potential buyers what types of products they offered. The recipient of the award could go purchase an additional decoration as long as they could provide proof they were awarded the decoration, i.e. via award document. I was simply suggesting that this could have been a display piece if it were period, and produced in a lower-quality metal rather than 900 silver.

    After the war, wartime manufacturers of awards would sell their display boards to souvenir hungry GI's stationed in Germany during the occupation.

    Us and them - and after all were only ordinary men. Me, and you - God only knows its not what we would choose to do. Forward he cried from the rear, and the front rank died, and the general sat and the lines on the map moved from side to side.

    A point that had not escaped my attention.
    'I do not think we can hope for any better thing now.
    We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
    It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.
