[War Of 1812] Re: MGS, bar "FORT DETROIT" to a Native Warrior - For Sale
- I went back to the source of the info. on the "Fort Detroit MGS" - a
chat for military collectors - and the consensus there is that the
medal in question is "a duff one". Apparently it's gone the rounds and
is suspected by several knoweledable collectors of being a re-named
medal with an added bar.
I suppose the venue of the sale should have clued me in! Though, if I
were an impoverished institution who wanted to avoid being pilloried
for selling a national treasure, I might be tempted to use ebay too!
Apologies for the false alarm!
