Offered is a beautiful original Silver Star Medal, complete with matching ribbon bar and lapel pin in the original presentation box of issue. The set remains in perfect condition.
The type of box is characteristic for the Silver Stars that were awarded during the Second World War and is also referred to as “Coffin Box”.
The medal represents extreme heroic deeds and bravery in times of war at the risk of their own life, more than the service requires, but not exceptional enough for the Navy Cross, Air Force Cross or Distinguished Service Cross.
Although this Silver Star was produced between 1943-1945 (can be seen by the brooch on the ribbon), they were also issued after WW2 (because so many were made during WW2).
Beautiful original set in top condition. A nice addition to any collection!
