USA, medals, patches, & insignia
    There is a rather extensive library on the medals and insignia of the USA military, and there is a lot of stuff available to collect.  Not too long ago it was illegal to buy and sell the medals, but now they are all over the place, or at least the modern versions are.

USA, Great War for Civilization (1919), France clasp, the clasp seems perhaps a bit dubious to me, though perhaps I'm just a bit paranoid, the medal is fine, old ribbon, XF $35.00
