    Great item. Looks legit to me. The paperwork and the history behind it must make it a lot more interesting.

    Rory, can we get a better shot of the engraving? From the photo you showed, it looks like this is a later engraving, post WWII style, more of a 60's-70's style. The PH itself may be from WWII, but it looks as though the engraving may have been added after the fact, possibly as a new old stock used as a replacement for the veteran. Just my two cents.
