Description

Naval General Service Medal, 3 bars, Guadaloupe, Java, St Sebastian, named to “James Russell”

 

The naming appears to be re-impressed, but not at the mint, the style of the naming is very close to the original impressing.

 

Two James Russell’s earned Naval General Service Medals, there was a James Russell, Able Seaman who earned the bars for Java and St Sebastian, making a very similar medal, however his original medal with 2 bars is reportedly in existence and in a private collection.

 

There was also a James T. Russell, Master of the Cyclops in the Syria campaign.

 

An attractive original medal with multiple original clasps
