Today arrived the next piece in my US collection, which has been growing exponentially this year. This time we have a nice condition "Germany" Army of Occupation medal. Examining these has left me with a couple of questions perhaps one of you might know. Firstly, did these sets come with both the Germany and Japan bars? Also, did the veteran attach the bar, or were these pre-attached?
