Full Size Medal Attachment: 1960 Date Bar for the Republic of Vietnam Campaign award

$2.70

1960 clasp attachment for the full size Vietnam Campaign Medal award in a silver oxidized finish. The Vietnam Campaign medal is issued with a device known as the 1960 Bar. The bar displays the date of 1960 followed by a dash and a blank space. The unusual appearance was caused by the government of the Republic of Vietnam stating that the 1960 bar would show the dates of the Vietnam War from start to finish, with the ending date placed on the 1960 bar after the South Vietnamese had triumphed over North Vietnam (the Democratic Republic of Vietnam). Since South Vietnam fell, and the government ceased to exist, an ending date for the 1960 Bar was never established. Individually priced.
