    Classes struggle, some classes triumph, others are eliminated. Such is history, such is the history of civilization for thousands of years.

    The medal in the photo is a re-strike. The DLA number and bar code are a dead giveaway. It is dated 1988.

    The WW2 medals were issued in a small blue cardboard box with a paper lable affixed to one of the ends of the lid. Inside the box the medals are attached to a blue faux velvet piece of cardboard.

    I will post a few pics later of some different type boxes and lables.
