Red, white, and blue suspension ribbon, somewhat faded and frayed but intact. The 1 5/8" x 1 9/16" shield shaped medal exhibits superior quality die work including a ship, stand of arms, cannon and central wreath with Mexico and 1846, and Mexican War battles around the border. Also included is a silver ¾" version of the medal for use in the lapel with stud back. Fraying to the ribbon as noted, the silver in perfect untouched condition.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
