Last week Steve Pellegrini asked where to find information about medals issued to returning World War I veterans by a great many U.S. cities, towns and states. Several readers responded - thanks to all! -Editor
Joe Levine was the first to respond, offering these references:
- State, County, City and Organization Medals for World War I. Second Revised Edition by Richard L. Planck, 1991. Planchet Press Publication 48A. 124pp.
- Revised Comprehensive List of World War I Service Medals Issued By States, Counties, Cities & Towns by Louis W. Small, 1990, 84pp
Larry Dziubek contacted token and medal dealer Steve Tanenbaum. Steve was aware of the Small book and two others - a 3rd edition of Planck and a book by Dougles Bryce which covers state medals of all wars.
- State, County, City and Organization Medals for World War I by Richard L. Planck, 3rd Ed. 1995
- State Medals for War Service by Douglas W. Boyce, 1988
Harry Waterson submitted the Small reference as well. He
I believe a copy is available at the ANA Library.
Many thanks to all who responded! -Editor
