from a person of great knowledge in Ribbonology
5-star Marine Corps Brevet Medal ribbon came from Mel Wolf (of Wolf-Brown)
in the 1940's and is not official.
new Coast Guard Medal was proposed, the C.G. approved this ribbon;
the slash sheet was printed; vendors manufactured the ribbon
and medals were ordered, the Coast Guard rejected the ribbon and went back
to searching for a new one.
GRACO was one vendor who made the ribbon. They also made up some
Army Medical Unit Streamer Spes Sheet-306B- shows both ribbon and Streamer
ribbon and inadvertently manufactured in ribbon form,
the ribbon exist as an error.
difference between the old and new versions of the Dewey (Manila Bay) Medal
was the sewn edge, NOT the height of the ribbon.
Bailey Medal was for good seamanship and is NOT a campaign medal.
U. S. COAST GUARD bar was affixed permanently to the USCG Good Conduct
Medal and is not a device, attachment or appurtenance of
any kind, also the KOREA bar. It was affixed permanently to the United
Nations Korean Service Medal and is also not a device,
attachment or appurtenance, though it exisits as one.
have copies of these Bars in my collection as seperate devices and this
is why they are included, am told by a very, very good source that they
are not Official.
DOMINICAN Cpn. (UNOFFICIAL) and the PERSIAN GULF Cpn. (UNOFFICIAL) are
included as reference only for those who may run across them.
