Campaign & Common Medals From WWI


For the collector, medals from the First World War are often the most common starting point. This is for a number of reasons which include: the fact that most people are moved by the sheer size of the sacrifice, the medals are fairly cheap and easy to come by, also that they are named making the association between the soldier and the collector a bit more real.
