US Engraved medal Grouping PH and Bronze star

    From what I know I am pretty sure that the PH, BS, campaign medals, and ruptured duck are WWII vintage.
    The Victory medal, and good conduct are questionable re-issues, and the marksman badge and CIB are definatly newer.
    Any thoughts?

    Thanks, gel what do you use for reference on medals? I have not really handled many, since I prefer combat related items.

    I learned some new things, the BS and PH are what is known as "slot brooch" so possibly WWII issue, but could be later engraved. The rest are "crimp brooch" which I think means post war (reissue)?
    Can anyone comment on that, just want to make sure I am right.

    I posted on the USMF and got a somewhat rude remark from ww2relichunter since I only had 40 posts, because I contradicted his opinion...
    This is why I stay on the WRF, but they do have some helpful members and threads.

    Hi Ben.

    Generally, US WWII medals have slot brooches - identified by sewn threads
    at the edges - Still, a very nice set ! I think you are right about the GC and
    Victory, as they look like the modern types. The American Campaign
    and European-Middle Eastern are likely ok.

    Looks like a family member may have gathered all the necessary pieces
    together for the display - it's possible the Victory and GC were
    Government supplied replacements.

    I'd need to see the backs of the CIB and Marksmanship badge
    to know if they are more recent.

    ( I was at a show here several years ago, and a guy had a huge bag
    full of loose American Campaign medals at $4 each.........)
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Thanks for affirming that Steve I am new and now cautious to US awards.
    I am not sure why since I have collected US for a while, guess I spent all my money on combat related items...
