Any thoughts here guys, like to know if the earlier one is ww2 period.
The one with the V device is definitely not second world war vintage. The one in the older box looks like it is of the right vintage to be second world war.
Thanks i knew the latter is current issue valor bronze star, it is still a nice complete set.
The ww2 period one needs a lapel pin to complete both display very in their own right.
Thanks again for your input.
The one that has the slotted broach is the older of the 2. It's use came in 1944 by the Army 1945 for Navy, but this type was also used up to 1960. I wish you luck on completing it.
Thanks Phil, i should be able to pick up the lapel pin to complete.
