    Default usa victory medal

    picked this up at a local antiques fair about a year ago, the medal and ribbon look their age but not sure about the clasps, while the top one I believe is a battle clasp, the other I thought was for service in france in a non combatant role, if so is this combination incorrect ? , many thanks for any advice !,
    kind regards,

    Nothing wrong with the clasps,the france one came out in 1931 and was put on by the soldier not military given.
