CONDITION: 8(Very Fine- Excellent Overall): The medals show minor to moderate wear, the ribbons in good condition, No.138 ID can see the picture has split, No.C-503 ID shows center part split but cover is good condition, all the other paper items are in good condition, overall excellent condition. The only issue is that this was at one time displayed using velcro to set the various paper prices, and velcro si still on the back fo some of the pieces, as it would possibly require a paper conservator to remove these.
