  • Death wears a beret and perhaps sailors outfit he's retrieving a net full of naval ships

    Perhaps my favorite medal an image hard to forget

  • I've wondered from time to time if these large medals with an attached loop were actually worn around someones neck...and if someone, somewhere fell down hard and landed with the medal sideways, causing a fatal chest wound!

  • I've never met a neck I didn't like.

    You doth wonder too much.

    Someone sure hosed the solder job on this medallion/loop attachment.  I'll bet you could take the medallion to a jeweler to have them remove the solder without damage to the piece.  I don't suggest you do it yourself though.
