    Hi panzer \
    this purple heart was most likely made between the late 1942 to about 1943 by rex product company !! ones that where five digits and less went to ww1 vets these where ph 1 through about 60000 the others 60000 through 100,000 where issued early war between 1939 to 1941 many went to ww1 vets still applying for their medals but some where early war casualties !! your was most likely issued early 1943 if i was buying or selling this piece it would be listed at about 55 dollars because of condition and lack of box !! if you want more info or want to sell shot me a pm thanks sean
