It looks like a type II slotted brooch.
Here is a PH site that can give you a little history about that number and who made it.

as of recently, some of these numbered ones from ww2 can be researched.
I would be very interested to find out how, Cheers Paul
I'm glad I was able to point you in the right direction. It is a great site with a wealth of info on the PH.
There is also another thread running in this section were a PH was found in the trash and the Member who found it was told to try this site. Purple Hearts Reunited | Returning lost medals to veterans. to find its owner.
