    I"m NOT a US medal collector, there was something else in the lot I was after. (WW2 Soviet) My simple look at this says, if it is real, it is a well worn WW2 purple heart? Does anyone have a correction? It came with some other US medals as well (air service and WW1 victory).

    Any information welcomed.

    It looks like a well worn late WW2 or later medal. I don't see any marking on the side of the medal itself?

    I agree 100% with Blackcat.. WW2 era Purple Heart that has not been stored well over the years.. Maybe came from a home where people had smoked..

    Would like to see the other medals it came with (if possible)

    Thanks all, worth moving it on or just throw it in a box? Any value to a collector? Again, I was after the WW2 soviet combat award in the lot.

    Folks are always looking for WW2 era PHs, so someone might be interested. Are there any numbers on the rim?

    I'll dig it out and look at the rim......got distracted by the Order of Glory 3rd class in the group.

    I hope it doesn't get just thrown into a box... Sadly unnamed, but the owner shed blood for this.

    Don't worry! I'll put it in a NICE box, not with a bunch of paperclips et all! I take care of all of it no matter the value, just have more than I can display. Just won't push something no one else has interest in......

    This isn't a place where no one has interest in anything like this meyerse.

    I'll find a good home for it then. It needs someone who can appreciate it fully

    maybe I'll make a custom box for it before I move it on ;-)
