Speaking about the episode as a whole, a third wrote: “Great show, but it was the first time I’ve seen a fix that didn’t seem very well planned and could fail.”

However, others were seriously impressed with the outcome. One person mused: “Loved it. How much those repairs and restorations meant to those who owned them. And the feeling of the guy’s daughter feeling so privileged to pin her father’s medal back on his lapel. Priceless!”
