List of Silver Stars by Number

Recommended Posts

Finished the Silver Star medal number list. This is pretty much the same type of list as the Purple Heart list I posted. Like that list, this list was culled from over 400+ General Orders. Only WW2 awards are listed.

Medal numbers with an asterisk have some anomaly associated with them. It could be a duplicate award; a change in name or ASN; the award was rescinded/deleted/amended; or some other change in information. Not listed are posthumous, POW, MIA awards; medals awarded with no medal number recorded; and second and third awards.

If you find your medal number and want like to know more, I can help fill in the blanks. For a fee, you will get the name, ASN, General Order number and date, unit of the award recipient, and a copy of the General Order entry for your soldier. This information will increase the value of your medal significantly. Silver Star number 18769 was awarded to a General; 19809 was awarded to a Warrant Officer.

Cost is $75 per number. If paying by paypal please include paypal fees. I also accept Postal Money Orders. Feel free to message or email me (info@etsproductionsllc.com) with any questions.

The attached list is in pdf format. I know some folks had problems downloading the PH list, hopefully that won't happen with this list. But please email me if you have troubles downloading or opening it, I'll email you a copy.

Kevin

a 4 digit Silver Star should be named and hand engraved. The Pre-WWII awards were not traceable by number , but were all named.

 

You can get the award card from the NARA through a researcher.

Tried your old email but it was returned to me. I have a BB&B Silver Star #34415. Is that one listed in your latest database?

Steve,

Sorry, that number isn't on the list. I need to update the original post. It was made long ago, I've since stopped using that email address. But for future reference, any medal number inquiries can be sent to purpleheartlist@yahoo.com or swagme@gmail.com.
