I am a little embarassed to ask this rookie question, but I am going to anyway.
I purchased this medal yesterday b/c I didn't have a minty, boxed US Victory Medal. I made the mistake of not looking at the reverse until I got home.
So is this an original or a more modern re-issue? As you can see the PO date is June of '46, but I obviously don't know if it's the medal that came with the box.
It does not have the double-slotted brooch, which is why I'm concerned it may be a more modern re-issue.
So is this double-slotted brooch a stead fast rule?
