    We did the first one for this Soldier in 1982.
    His son just brought it back in 35 years later. His Father had passed away. He wanted to add one additional medal, an oak leaf on the Presidential citation ribbon and a spent cartridge for his Fathers funeral ceremony.
    I actually remember doing this originally.. Medals Korea Chewing 1982.JPG Medals Korea Chewing 2017.JPG

    The top original one had a cream velvet the bottom we replaced with a cream suede.
    Original frame reused all corners still solid and tight.
    That is how family heirlooms are made.

    Now that's one of the more incredible Grumble stories - 35 years between jobs, you remembered it, and the customer came back to you. Your shop name was on the back?

    GUMBY GCF SGF, Supreme Grumble Framer

    Yes it does make it all worth it...

    Incredible yes, but you would be suprised at how many things that you do remember when they walk back through your door decades later.
    Yes name was on the back!~ Before I even looked at the back I looked at it and told the customer I remember this!~ I will admit i did not recognize the customer.
    I posted this on our face book page also.

    The customers age more dramatically than the framing.
    :rolleyes: Rick
