Had a good day at a block sale for some smalls. Found a really neat ornate match safe, a Tiffany & Co. Medallion. A beautiful brass bronze 1921 future farmers America belt buckle. Would like to get some info on the WWII Medal, the great war of civilization plus some patches with a #5 on it, etc. Enjoy

    Tony is correct the "5" patch is a WW2 US Army Air Force patch for the 5th Air Force. The statue of Liberty patch is the 77th Infantry Division. Both units were Pacific theater during WW2.

    The medal with ribbon is a WW2 Victory Medal.

    The small circular discs with the signal flags are enlisted collar insignia for someone who served in the Signal Corps.

    The two small eagle pins are lapel pins worn by newly discharged soldiers of WW2. They are known by collectors as ruptured ducks.

    Rivertrout I believe the medal with the colorful ribbon is a World War One victory medal.
