Hello,

Can anyone help me with this medal that belonged to my grandfather. He was in the Navy during WWI and this is just one of the many interesting items I have but know what they are.  This medal has the American & Japanese flags on it and the year 1908. Thanks, Robin

Thank you Johnny. Do you know if it's valuable or rare?

I would say rare but I will look about for values 

This is what I found 

yours appears to be missing the pin 

but it will give you an idea

Thanks so much Johnny, I looked all over for that but I didn't have the "Great White Fleet" name. Would you mind if I pick your brain about a few more items? If you don't mind they are pictured. The first item is a pin that says "New Jersey" on front with "No. 34188 Feb. 27, 1917" on back. I have a couple more of these that say other things. The 2nd 2 items are little gold decorative pins. One says 14k on the clasp but I can't find any marks on the other. The 3rd item is a pin that I can't ID. The only mark on the back is a "B" if you or anyone knows what these are I'd appreciate some help. I have other items also but I just keep trying to find them online.
Thanks,
Robin
