    This is a private purchase item Pammy. It is possible that the star is silver
    and has tarnished with age. (although from the note it may not be the
    case here) A silver star represents the rank of General in the US Army
    but in the US Navy, the star represents a Rear Admiral.
    The handwriting does look like it could be written by an older person
    who is recalling what they remember............

    I had one of these twisted wire pins that was with my dads things,
    without the star, that read 'Ethel'. I think I tossed it out because
    the clasp on the back was missing. I later bought a US pilot
    wing from Ebay with 'Carl - Ethel' inscribed on the back.
