    Does anyone know of a publication or a list of cities and towns that issued some sort of World War II service medal?

    Think I’ll kick off this new section by sharing my pride and joy in my French collection. The 3 items I’m most proud of.

    Firstly, my Officer of the Legion of Honor, 2nd Empire. I bought it in Paris near the Louvre 6 years ago, paid way too much for it but don’t care, I love it!

    Rockefeller Center Inc etc, but not aware about such a big list. Thanks for sharing. I have bookmarked the site for reference.
