Just picked up this Purple Heart and wanted some one to take a look at it. I really don't know much about these. This one is numbered as you can see from the photo. I guess the biggest question for me is the box. Most of the period US badges Iv had were in a wood box. I'm not sure what this one is made of but its a lot heavier then others Iv had. Did they ever make these out of plastic? Is this a war time issued badge and box?
Thanks for the help.
