    Default Question on medal brooches??

    Ok so I was wondering what brooches were used for what medals during WW2. Does anyone have any information or a website? I have been purchasing medals but before I buy them I'd like to make sure they are really WW2 and not post production.
    I have an Army of Occupation medal, Army good conduct medal, American Campaign medal, navy occupation service medal, and a victory medal.
    What brooches should these have?

    Thanks!

    They should be pin-back slot brooches with thread sewn at the edges to hold the ribbon to the brooch. However, a lot of medals made during WWII were issued as late as the Vietnam war.
