This is a rare full-size WW2 -era medal. It was awarded by the Twelfth Naval District, headquartered in San Francisco. These medals are very scarce, and this one is especially nice because it has the First Place bar and the Marksman bar. Notice the crossed Garand rifles. Also note that the original ribbon on this medal is the same as the WWI Victory Ribbon, which probably places this around 1942, with the maker using the stock that they had on hand. The piece is all-original, and is not a marriage. The 12th District covered California, Nevada, Colorado, and Utah. Measures just over 3 3/4" long in total length. Unique gift for US Navy veteran or collector.
