    Thanks for letting me keep them Major. Normally when I go to the P.O., the place has a coma-inducing effect. This morning at 0600, I was more alert while waiting on the sorting clerk that I had ever been before...wonder why?

    You know these WW1 DSC groups are a dime a dozen and everyone has one or two in their collections, but if it will make you feel better go ahead and show us the pictures. Right!!!

    Yea, well, since I am dirt common, I guess it is appropriate that I post just another run of the mill dirt common group. Sorry guys, I now this will be incredibly boring, but bear with me...

    Since the original is lost to history (maybe), I copied and pasted the official text of the citation and made my own for display purposes.

    Macro Obverse detail 2.

    Notice how the text on the ribbon continues behind the eagle's tail. The amount of detail in such a small piece is incredible. This first pattern is much smaller and thinner than the second pattern DSC that we are familiar with today.
