WW1 Gold Star Mothers and Widows Pilgrimage Medals and Photo Collection
After WWI, and specifically in 1929, an act of Congress facilitated organized pilgrimages to the grave sites of fallen U. Government paid the travel expenses for widows and mothers with the first group of pilgrims embarking on their journey in May of 1930. This is a collection of items from one such family’s pilgrimage. This collection was found grouped together and includes. Pilgrimage of Mothers and Widows Gold Star medal. Box in which medal was seated, marked Tiffany & Company on the front. Note that the medal itself is back-stamped B. 41 and not Tiffany. An enameled picture frame with a soldier depicted. In Ohio with patent dates of 1917 and 1918. Two small enameled pins, one with a heart and one with a star. These photos were found under an interior flap in the Tiffany box. Everything appears to be in very good, original condition. The Gold Star ribbon and the box do show some staining/soiling as can be seen. That is as much as I can tell you about these items. If you have any questions or need additional photos, please let me know. Thank you for looking.

This collection was found grouped together and includes. Pilgrimage of Mothers and Widows Gold Star medal. Box in which medal was seated, marked Tiffany & Company on the front. Note that the medal itself is back-stamped B. 41 and not Tiffany. I don’t know how the two relate. An enameled picture frame with a soldier depicted. In Ohio with patent dates of 1917 and 1918. Two small enameled pins, one with a heart and one with a star. These photos were found under an interior flap in the Tiffany box. Because they were found together, they should be kept together. I do not want to separate and sell any of these items separately. Everything appears to be in very good, original condition.

THE SWEDISH PATRIOTIC SOCIETY FOR ENCOURAGEMENT OF THE ARTS, CRAFTS AND THE COUNTRY’S INDUSTRIES WAS ESTABLISHED IN THE MID 18th CENTURY. THE SOCIETY WAS GRANTED ITS ARTICLES AND THE PREFIX “ROYAL” BY KING GUSTAF III IN 1772. THE SOCIETY WAS GIVEN PERMISSION TO ISSUE MEDALS IN 1802, AND CONFERRED THE RIGHT TO WEAR THE MEDALS TO THE RECIPIENT. THE SOCIETY WAS A FOCAL POINT FOR PERSONS OF PROMINENCE IN THE FIELDS OF GOVERNMENT, TRADE, SCIENCE, AGRICULTURE AND INDUSTRY, AND GAVE THE SOCIETY MEMBERS A VENUE TO DISCUSS NEW DEVELOPMENTS AND DISCOVERIES AND THEIR APPLICATION IN THEIR VARIOUS FIELDS. 1950, DEPICTED ON THE MEDAL’S OBVERSE, WAS THE OLDEST AND SECOND-LONGEST REIGNING MONARCH OF SWEDEN. A CONSERVATIVE, HE WAS THE LAST MONARCH TO BE SUPREME HEAD OF THE SWEDISH ARMED FORCES AND TO INTERVENE DIRECTLY IN THE POLITICS OF HIS NATION. ASCENDING TO THE THRONE IN 1907, HE REPLACED LIBERAL PRIME MINISTER KARL STAAF IN 1914. GUSTAF PLACED A FIGUREHEAD, HJALMAR HAMARSKÖLD IN THE POSITION WHO REMAINED IN PLACE THROUGHOUT MOST OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR. DURING WWI GUSTAF HELD A PRO-GERMAN ANTI-COMMUNIST STANCE, ALTHOUGH OFFICIALLY SWEDEN REMIANED NUETRAL.

IN 1943, THE YEAR THIS MEDAL WAS AWARDED, SWEDEN WAS AGAIN NUETRAL IN THE SECOND WORLD WAR. ALTHOUGH GUSTAF URGED THE COALITION GOVERNMENT OF SWEDEN TO GIVE IN TO NAZI GERMANY’S LOGISTICS REQUESTS, HE APPARENTLY DID NOT SUPPORT FACISM OR THE NAZIS, AND TO REFUSE THEM WOULD HAVE POSSIBLY PROVOKED AN INVASION.
