    I've looked all over and am starting to think it can't be an American Military ribbon, the closest I've found are a Coast Guard service medal (no black stripes) the Army DSM (not quite right) and a Canadian Service medal (no black stripes)

    We'll look ourselves blind until someone finds it. Looked at so many, my eyes are seeing ribbons when I am not even looking at them now.

    I'd somewhat given up on US military as well, pending any info that might be on the attachment device. The closest US ribbon I could find is the Multinational Force and Observers medal, but the blue stripes are a bit thick:

    If it weren't for the thin blue lines I'd say Canadian Special Service Medal

    I stopped looking after seeing a similar, but not exact, Mongolian police ribbon bar.
    Good luck,

    An official medal/ribbon issued by a branch of The United States military will not vary in appearance.

    The National Defense Service medal’s ribbon is 1 3/8 inches wide and has eleven stripes. The first stripe is 7/16 inch of Scarlet followed by 1/32 inch of White, 1/32 inch of Old Glory Blue, 1/32 inch of White, 1/32 inch of Scarlet and a middle stripe of 1/4 inch of Golden Yellow. The next stripe is 1/32 inch of Scarlet followed by 1/32 inch of White, 1/32 inch of Old Glory Blue, 1/32 inch of White, and lastly 7/16 inch of Scarlet.

    The official ribbon for the DSM is the same size as NDSM. To the best of my knowledge, all of the ribbons are the same size.

    Do you have a picture or reference to one? I am beginning to think this is not military but who knows.

    It could possibly be a state militia ribbon.
