Pictured is a set of French medals in a rather dilapidated frame. The ribbons are beyond salvage due to fading and rot, and the certificate is damaged due to the medals being re-attached with glue, and then by someone else using blue-tac. The frame is missing most of its walnut veneer and has some woodworm damage. But apart from all the faults it should look quite good when repaired.
I have two questions to ask. The first one.... What order should these medals be in?
Second question... Did the French only swing-mount medals, or did they go for court-mount as well?
Obviously I want to hang the medals as they should be, but if court-mount would also be correct, it would hide all the damage to the certificate.
Thanks in anticipation.
