    Very nice silver star the market has always been strong on the silver star and the purple heart. I have been collecting for a long time and do not have either in my collection. I have several bronze stars and a DFC but no silver star. Very Nice! I can't tell you if it is real of fake because I have not handled any but the box looks good at the least.

    yeah I read that there were laws against it on ebay. I think that was to stop army surplus stores from selling modern strikes than it did to stop us from collecting
