    Has this already been brought up? If so, my apologies!

    But 9 is not VIIII.
    4 is not IIII.

    Yes 9 should 1X

    4 should be 1V I believe if I remember my roman numerals.

    Well, that is certainly better but not quite

    I am pretty sure it's IX and IV.

    The rosettes were not designed to be read as one number, but a collection of separate "awards".

    Clearly this is being misread, and I agree that a V and 4 "I"s is awkward. A redesign will probably be incoming because I think this will be a recurring issue.

    Good on you, Russ. Even clocks that use "IIII" for four o'clock use "IX" for nine o'clock.
