    Nick,

    You got a nice piece of WWII memorabilia there. A beautiful piece with a lot of meaning to it, and it seems to be in a wonderful condition. Nice purchase.



    Regards,

    Gus

    Hi Nick, very nice item. I think these are great patriotic items and are typically American. I think this was a great practise and I think it continues to the present day. Yours is a good period item.

    I am not sure when this practise started? Perhaps one of our US members will be able to tell us more? I am certain it was used in WW1.

    Cheers, Ade.

    And if one was killed the star would be gold.
    There is a civilian group of mothers called "Gold Star Mothers" that exists today.
